Some enemies of Nigeria are behind the persistent attacks in the northern region of the country, the Emir of Katsina, Alhaji Abdulmumini Kabir Usman, has declared.
The emir said he has always told President Muhammadu Buhari to be wary of enemies within and outside his government.
According to him, those enemies were out to destroy the northern region.
He disclosed this in his palace while addressing a federal government’s delegation led by the national security adviser, General Babagana Monguno (rtd), Daily Trust reports.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that as residents continue to protest in the northern part of the country against banditry and insecurity, a prominent monarch in the region, Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammed Sa’ad Abubakar III, called on Buhari to listen to advise.
The respected monarch who is also the president-general of the Jama’atu Nasril Islam said the president should listen even if the advice is coming from perceived enemies.
He disclosed this in a statement signed by the JNI secretary-general, Dr. Khalid Abubakar Aliyu.
The sultan who said Nigerians, especially northerners have the right to protest insecurity, told the government to stop condemnations and instead take decisive action.
Legit.ng had also reported that the presidency assured Nigerians, again, that the nation’s armed forces are fully capable of dealing with the challenges of banditry and terrorism.
Videos shared on social media last week showed angry residents pulling down billboards of the president and setting up bonfires.
Despite assurances from the president, many Nigerians are of the opinion that he has largely failed.
Comments on the Facebook page of the president's aide, suggests the president is losing support even amongst his kinsmen who have been supportive of his administration in the past.
