Insecurity: Take secessionist agitation as wake-up call, Sultan tells FG

The Jama’atu Nasril Islam, JNI, led by the Sultan of Sokoto, Mohammed Sa’ad Abubakar III, has urged the Federal Government to take the agitation for secession in some parts of the country as a wake-up call.

He also urged the government to take appropriate measures to rekindle the spirit of patriotism in Nigerians, as part of efforts to tackle the challenges in the country.

Recall that there had been secessionist calls for state of Biafra in the South East, championed by such groups as the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPoB, and Movement for Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, as well as Oduduwa Republic by some Yoruba groups in the South West.

The JNI, in a statement to mark the end of Ramadan, noted that government needed to prevail on Nigerians to unite for the common good of all.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the statement was signed by the Secretary General of JNI, Dr Khalid Aliyu, in Kaduna yesterday.

“We also call on the government in respect to the perceived calls for the fragmentation of Nigeria from different quarters, to take the trend as a wake-up call to improve and or rejig the security network.
