Sultan of Sokoto rejects Northern security outfit


The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar has shown his displeasure of the newly formed Northern security outfit, Shege Ka Fasa.

The Sultan speaking at the Northern Security Meeting which was held in Kaduna on Thursday said he was disappointed that the Northern elders have not cautioned the youths who are said to be behind this security outfit.

Speaking further, he said the elders have to caution the youths and give them good leadership.


Read part of his statement below:

“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.
