Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III has reacted to the incessant killings in the northern part of the country.
Speaking in a statement by JNI’s Secretary General, Dr Khalid Abubakar Aliyu, the Sultan said these acts should give those in leadership sleepless nights.
The Northern youths and other Northern groups have all written to the president to checkmate these killings making the Sultan question if public opinions do not count in this government.
“The repeated massacre of people, as well as the senseless burning of houses and livestock in Borno, Katsina, Sokoto, Zamfara, Niger states and indeed other states such as Adamawa, Kaduna and Taraba, should give governments and its functionaries at both federal and state levels sleepless nights.
“By now, an instantaneous pronouncement followed by robust actions should have been made by the government of the day, not verbal warnings and condemnations dished out to the perpetrators of the murderous acts.
