Governor Masari announced on Tuesday that Katsina State had pulled out of a peace deal with the bandits stating that they had not upheld their own end of the bargain by carrying attacks against innocent civilians in the state.

He said the actions of the bandits amounted to a breach of trust with his administration  which is doing everything to ensure peaceful coexistence in Katsina state.
