Sultan of Sokoto Condemns ‘Shege Ka Fasa:
Following the creation of local security outlet called ‘Operation Amoteukun’ by South-West Governors, Nothern part of the country also have come up with a security outlet with the name Shege Ka Fasa as a replica to that of South-West in their own region.
However, this has been condemned by many Nigerians, noting that it’s not called for and that the timing is alarming.
It was in this vein that popular and powerful monarch in the northern part of the states, the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ ad Abubakar also condemned the establishment of the northern outlet.
The Islamic cleric and leader faults the northern leaders who initiated the “Operation Shege Ka Fasa” just to score cheap political points, he noted.
9jatoday understands that His Royal Highness, Abubakar had condemned the idea while speaking on Thursday at a Northern Security Meeting in Kaduna.
Meanwhile, the Coalition of Northern Groups had unveiled the symbol of the security outfit on Wednesday in Kaduna.

The Sultan of Sokoto speaks further to say, “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.“
He added “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.”
