Emir of Kano - Muhammad Sanusi II Says Security Is A Collective Responsibility

The Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, has said that the general public should not leave security matters to government or traditional rulers alone, even as he blamed insecurity situation in the country on poverty and illiteracy.

The emir who made the call on Monday, while speaking at a meeting of Kano elders, said ensuring adequate security in the society, should be collective efforts of all Nigerians.

His words: “If you see a 17-year-old carrying bomb, there is a need to ask ourselves a question; was she brainwashed because of illiteracy or how much was she paid because of
poverty.”

He, however, informed that his council had already met with Ulamas in the state over the situation.
