The Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar has rejected the Northern security outfit called Shege Ka Fasa.
The outfit was established by the Coalition of Northern Groups and will help to battle against kidnappings and banditry in the region.
Speaking at a Northern security summit in Kaduna, the Sultan stated that the establishment of Shege Ka Fasa is just to ‘score a cheap political point’.
He said, “I saw the security outfit on the media. Now, the elders allowed these youths to go forward.
”The elites are our problems, the youth will do whatever they like If the elders don’ t take the lead and think they are right. They have to caution these youths by giving them good leadership.“
“The youths launched their own security outfit they call it Shege Ka Fasa’, meaning what?
“I’m calling on northern elders to caution them. Don’t allow these youths to take over leadership from you. You have to reach out to everybody no matter how low the person is”.
