The royal father stated that, the government’s inability to discharge her constitutionally assigned roles and duties ranging from the protection of lives and properties to keeping and maintaining peace is part of the government failures that has led to these massive killings. He therefore puts the blames squarely on the government of the day.

The sultan made this comment at the General Assembly of the Northern Traditional Rulers Council, which took place in Kaduna, north-west Nigeria, yesterday, Monday December 4, 2017.
