It was a moment of shock and surprise when protesters in Yantumaki town, Danmusa local government area of Kastina state burnt down a billboard bearing the picture of President Muhammadu and the log of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

This development has sparked up different reactions and interpretations from different corners of the country.

One will recall that the president hails from Kastina, does this mean that the indigenous of the state of Kastina frowns at the president performance so far?

On Tuesday morning, residents of the town protested against the attacks and killings by bandits.
This development is coming a week after Aminu Masari, governor of Katsina, announced that his administration had pulled out of the peace deal with bandits.

Just a week ago, the entire country woke up to the news of a young girl that was gang-raped in Ibadan.

The state government had initially entered a peace agreement with the gunmen. But despite the accord, communities in Katsina are still being consistently attacked and residents killed.
On June 1, bandits shot dead 60-year-old Abu Atiku, district head of Yantumaki.

The gunmen also attacked some communities in Batsari LGA of the state and killed the council’s APC chairman.

The protesters reportedly barricaded the Katsina/Kankara major highway and blocked the road leading to the town.
They were said to have been enraged by the kidnap of one Mansir Yusuf and his daughter by bandits around 1 am on Tuesday.
