The Sultan of Sokoto and President General of the Jamaatu Nasril Islam, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar lll, has condemned the incessant killings and painted a dismal picture of insecurity in Nigeria as he said bandits, in the northern part, now go into houses to kidnap people.
Abubakar, who is the leader of Nigerian Muslims, made this known yesterday at the 4th quarter 2020 meeting of the Nigeria Inter-Religious Council (NIREC) held in Abuja.
According to the monarch, bandits now went into houses to kidnap people.
He said both the Nigerian and state governments must wake up to their responsibilities of protecting the lives and property of Nigerians.
He said, “How much an onion costs in Nigeria today is an insight into the current economic hardship in the country.
“We do not lack recommendations and solutions to our problems. What we lack is a sense of purpose.”
The Sultan, a former military officer, is also the President-General of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, (NSCIA).
