The sultan of Sokoto state, Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, has denied making a statement alleging that security agents were dodging bandits and ridiculing victims of attacks.

In a statement today, the executive secretary of the Nigeria inter-religious council (NIREC), Cornelius Omonokhua, stated that the allegations were wrong and the sultan remains focused on restoring and sustaining peace in affected areas.

According to Omonokhua, the sultan said security operatives need to be proactive, arriving communities under attacks on time before assailants unleash terror rather than consoling affected persons after the deed is done.

Earlier, the sultan, was alleged to have accused security operatives of dodging bandits and mocking victims.
