It will take decades to end banditry in the North ? Sultan of Sokoto

Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammadu Saad Abubakar III, on Monday, June 24, said it will take decades for the North-West to overcome banditry and insecurity.


Abubakar, who is also the President General of the Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, NSCIA, spoke at the North-West Peace and Security Summit in Katsina State.


He said: “What we must do is to challenge these bandits because we all know the consequences of banditry and insurgency on our lives.


“But it will take decades to get out of it if all we get out of it. We all know the consequences and the problems.”


He expressed the readiness of traditional rulers to partner with security agencies and Northern governors to “save our region from the numerous problems” of banditry and insurgency.


He expressed hope that at the end of the summit, proposals to bring insurgency to the barest minimum for people to go about their lives and businesses would be arrived at.
