No place is safe in Nigeria now, Sultan laments

Nigerians are now at the mercy of criminals with nowhere safe, Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, said on Wednesday.

He described Saturday’s killing of no fewer than 43 rice farmers in Borno as “a senseless act”. The senate put the death toll at 67.

According to him, bandits now control many northern communities and set rules that must be obeyed.

The Sultan urged the Federal Government to stop paying lip service to security matters.

He spoke under the auspices of the apex Islamic body in Northern Nigeria, the Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI),

He asked Imams across the country to embark on special prayer against insecurity five times a day.
