Members of Peoples Democratic Party Social Media Organization , Katsina state chapter, have have commenced counter-banditry training in the use of locally made catapults.
The youths claimed that they embarked on the exercise tagged, “Operation Catapult Shoot”, as part of efforts to defend themselves against armed bandits in response to Governor Aminu Bello Masari’s directive.
State Chairman of the Organization, Comrade Nuraddeen Adam Kankara Tina led other members of the social media group to launch the exercise in Katsina metropolis.
