Apparently concerned about waves of insecurity in the region, an Arewa group, the Northern Reform Organization, NRO, has called for the ex-military to be withdrawn to join forces with the Joint Task Forces, the JTF to urgently address the nasty trend in the region squarely.

This was also because it requires the participation of 50 civilians each of the 774 local government areas of the country for greater integration in the working groups.

The chairman of the group’s Media and Publicity Committee, Ado Muhammad, made the call while addressing journalists over the weekend in Kano.

Muhammad also called for a thorough review of the people to avoid infiltration and the target defeated.

“Former security personnel must be withdrawn and integrated into the civilian JTF, which in turn must be made up of carefully selected members to avoid infiltration.

“The Joint Civilian Task Forces, the JTFs must be modified to include former security personnel and at least 50 civilians from each district of the 774 local government areas of the country.

“Crime has become a permanent feature in northern Nigeria. Community religious conflicts, the Boko Haram insurgency, the shepherd / farmer crisis, kidnapping and trafficking of children, as well as drug abuse, have combined to make the North, in the words of His Eminence Sultan Sa ‘ ad Abubakar III, the most unsafe place to live. in Nigeria. In conflict areas such as Zabarmari, Borno State, Zamfara, Katsina, Niger, Sokoto, others.

“NRO has been following recent developments in Nigerian politics, particularly regarding the senseless killings at Zabarmari in Borno state and many other atrocities, the mass kidnapping of more than 300 students from the Government Science High School, Kankara, Katsina State.

“Today’s waves of insecurity cannot be fully dissociated from youth unrest caused by harsh economic realities. To this end, all governments should hasten to facilitate industrialization and agricultural renaissance.

“Persistent insecurity and crime in northern Nigeria must be addressed directly. The government must assume its responsibilities and strive to provide good governance and ensure the safety of life and property of citizens, ”said Muhammad.

In one development, a religious group, Jama’atut Tajdidil Islamy has also engaged religious leaders in the 19 northern states with a view to finding a lasting solution to the social and security challenges in the region.

This comes on the heels of the waves of insecurity that continue to plague the region.

National President Sheikh Abubakar Mujahid said religious leaders have a role to play in mediating and addressing the conflict between the warring parties before it escalates or degenerates.

In his words, “religious leaders are the ones in the communities with the people, if they understand these things that we are discussing now and understand the steps to control the crisis, they could mediate between the parties or groups in conflict before it escalates. . ”Affirmed the national president, Mujahid.

Earlier, Kano State Police Commissioner CP Habu Sani, represented by SP Haruna Abdulkadir, said that security is everyone’s business and should not be left to the security agencies alone.
