Emirs Parley With Security Chiefs In Kaduna Over Boko Haram

Worried by the incessant killings in its communities, the Kaduna State Council of Chiefs yesterday met behind closed doors with a view to finding lasting solution to the insecurity problems plaguing their communities

LEADERSHIP gathered that the royal fathers who met at Arewa House, Kaduna resolved to end the spate of killings being perpetrated by unknown gunmen in some of the communities.

A source at the meeting informed that the royal fathers were lectured by the police top hierarchy and operatives of the State Security Service (SSS) on how to best curb the menace of insecurity in the various communities.

The Chief of Gbagyi, Danjuma Barde, and chiefs of Saminaka and Chawai whose areas have been under attacks, in their separate speeches blamed the attacks on fulanis.

The meeting which was chaired by the Emir of Zazzau, Alhaji Shehu Idris, ended with a resolve to fight insecurity to a standstill.
The royal fathers led by their chairman later paid a courtesy visit to the state governor, Sir. Patrick Ibrahim Yakowa.

Governor Yakowa who received the royal fathers, told them to brace up to the challenges of ensuring peaceful coexistence among their adherence.

Sources at the meeting further told LEADERSHIP that a visibly unhappy Governor Yakowa lamented the absence of security in the communities in spite of the huge amount of money spent on security.

The governor thus directed the traditional rulers to ensure there is no break of law and order in their various domains.
