Some Nigerians have taken to social media expressing shock over comments by Governor Aminu Bello Masari, of Katsina State that bandits terrorizing the entire nation are Fulani people.

Newspot had reported that the Governor, during an interview with Channels Television on Monday, revealed that the bandits are majorly Fulani herdsmen who speak same language and profess same religious belief like himself.

According to him, “This bandits are not aliens, they are people we know. They are people that have been living with us for hundred of years.

“Majority of those involved in this banditry are Fulanis. Wether it is believable or not, that is the truth. These are people who live in the forest and their major occupation is rearing of cattle”.

Reacting, some social media users expressed shock, saying that facts about the security crisis in the country are “gradually coming out”.

Below are some of the reactions on Twitter as compiled by Newspot:
