The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Saad Abubakar, has berated the newly established security outfit called ‘Shege Ka Fasa’ in the north which was created as a copy of the South-West Amotekun.
YaahooJournalist reports that the Sultan of Sokoto who was furious with the idea of Shege Ka Fasa, faulted elites in the region, saying that the establishment was only made up just to score cheap political points.
The Sultan expressed his dissatisfaction with the development while speaking at the Northern Security Meeting which was held in Kaduna on Thursday.
YaahooJournalist recalls that the spokesman of the Coalition of Northern Group (CNG), Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, on Wednesday, unveiled a regional security outfit for the North known as “Shege-Ka-Fasa”.
Reacting to the security outlet, the Sultan of Sokoto said, “I saw it on the television, and the media gave them attention. Now, the elders allowed these youths to go forward. So, the elites are our problems, the elders are our problems. If the elders don’ t take the lead, the youth will do whatever they like and think they are right. You have to caution these youths by giving them good leadership.“
“Now, they have launched their own security outfit I don ’t know what they call it, Shege Ka Fasa’, meaning what? “
“So, I want to call 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. So, I think we need to take the bull by the horns and not allow the youths to take over responsibility. I think we need to do that and much more.”
