Something worse than Boko Haram may emerge:
Saad Abubakar, the Sultan of Sokoto has issued a warning to the Northern Nigerians with a premonition that the North may witness a bigger problem than that of Boko Haram Terrorists.
Speaking at security meeting in Kaduna, Abubakar said northern political leaders are the problems of the region, as they have failed to provide them with quality leadership.
He maintained that the number of orphans in the region was alarming, noting that it could snowball into something that “would turn out to be worse than the Boko Haram”.
The Monarch spoke against the establishment of an outfit in the region code-named “Operation Shege-Ka-Fasa”, cautioning the ruling class not to allow youths take over their position.
The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNGs) revealed the security operatives last Wednesday, and said it would tackle crimes in the region.
It should be noted that the outfit was launched one month after South West Governors floated Amotekun, a regional security outfit.
Mr Abubakar also advised the northern elders to caution the youth, saying if the elders fail to take the lead, the youth would do whatever they like and feel is right.
“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.
