You Must Identify ‘Unknown Gunmen’, Sultan Tells Security Agencies

Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar

The Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, has asked security agencies to identify “unknown gunmen”.

He said this on Thursday in Abuja at the 2021 3rd Quarter Meeting of the Nigeria Inter-Religious Council (NIREC).

The monarch, who is also a co-chairman of NIREC, said the level of insecurity in the country is worrisome.

He wondered why unknown people have killed so many and nothing has been done to prosecute them.

All of us are very worried about the level of insecurity in this country. And I keep on saying it, things are not getting better, and I will continue saying it.”

How can they be unknown? Unknown people kill so many people and nothing is done? Where are our intelligence agencies? Don’t we have a proactive intelligence agency that will see ahead of anybody or any criminal that is trying to do something? I am a military man and I know what I am talking about,” he said.

He also criticised religious leaders who have been inciting their followers.

“The Co-Chairman (CAN President Ayokunle) made a remark of one Islamic leader, I have never heard of it until I saw that video, and I know somebody in Plateau who made a very terrible video calling on the youths to rise up and kill Muslims, it’s all over the social media.”

What are our security agencies doing? Can’t they invite these people and ask them what they really mean? Nobody should be above the law, whether a Christian or a Muslim, you cannot incite people to kill innocent people,” Abubakar said.
