Benue Killings: Sultan Blames Security Agencies
The Sultan of Sokoto, Saad Abubakar, has added his voice to the herdsmen killings in Benue State.
He queried the competence of the security agencies and their inability to stop the attacks and killings.
He stated that everything must be done to stop the ongoing loss of lives, warning religious and political leaders to avoid inflammatory utterances that could further worsen the situation.
The Sultan, who is also the President-General, Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, said this on Thursday in Abuja at the 1st General Assembly of Inter-faith Dialogue forum with the theme, ‘Living together, achieving together.’
The monarch observed that Nigerians should be more concerned about the daily loss of lives instead of the religion or ethnicity of the victims, stressing that God is angry with the killers.
“The killings must be stopped, they have gone too far. This is not the time to apportion blames, but to seek solutions. What are the security agencies doing and when will these killings stop? We must challenge the leaders with one voice, the issues must not be looked at with the prisms of religion or ethnicity,” Abubakar cautioned.FOR MORE FRESH STORIES, DOWNLOAD BOUNCE NEWS APP HERE
