- Many Nigerians have been killed and some kidnaped as a result of insecurity
Concerned over the continuous killings in Nigeria, the National Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) has on Wednesday, February 5, called on President Muhammadu Buhari to declare a state of emergency on security in Nigeria.
The council is under the leadership of its president-general and Sultan of Sokoto, His Eminence, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that In what many people believe is a direct response to SouthWest security outfit ‘Operation Amotekun’, the Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) has unveiled its own security outfit.
The outfit code-named ‘Operation Shege-Ka-Fasa’ means “I dare you to attack or surrender” in Hausa.
This was disclosed by the spokesman for the group, Abdullazeez Suleiman.
According to him, the only option left is to resort to voluntary self-defense mechanisms.
Going further, he said the north need security more than other regions.
Recall that Legit.ng reported that as the debate on the Operation Amotekun initiative continues, Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state, on Thursday, January 30, made a fresh update on the new security outfit.
The governor promised that Nigeria would begin to reap reward of the Operation Amotekun very soon.
Legit.ng gathered that he made the disclosure during the opening of a three-day annual general conference of Cherubim and Seraphim Unification Church of Nigeria, entitled: Enlarge the place of thy tent, at the sacred Cherubim and Seraphim Church general headquarters’ secretariat, Ashi, Orita Bashorun area of Ibadan, the capital of the state.
