Emir links insecurity to homosexuality in north
Forum honours FSARS boss for fighting Boko Haram, others
The Emir of Birnin Gwari in Kaduna State, Mallam Zubairu Jibrin Maigwari ll, has blamed illicit behaviours, particularly sodomy and lesbianism, for insecurity and other woes in the north.
Speaking at the weekend in Kaduna, the royal father noted that the present security challenge that touched everybody was man-made. According to him, sodomy and lesbianism openly displayed by the people are greatly responsible for the insecurity in the region.
He remarked that immorality was enough for God to be angry, adding that serious prayers for God’s intervention would remedy the situation.
“We need salvation, and only God can redeem the present situation. No person can do that for us,” he declared. The monarch added that the insecurity in his Birnin Gwari domain had reared its head in the last century, but was nipped in the bud.
“Twenty years ago, we noticed some security lapses. We came together and fought the menace. But in the last five years, the situation resurfaced. We can’t blame anybody but ourselves.
“Today, sodomy and lesbianism are the order of the day everywhere, the north in particular. People do it with pride. People no longer fear Allah. Even that alone is enough for God to be angry with us. That is why we are facing what we are facing today.”
MEANWHILE, Borno Emirate Concerned Citizens Forum (BECCF) has honoured the officer in charge of the defunct Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS), Mohammed Ibrahim, for fighting insecurity.
Yesterday’s award followed the one by the House of Assembly last month in Maiduguri.
Ibrahim, a Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP), headed the state police command’s Anti-Robbery Crack Squad before it was later converted to SARS.
While presenting the award at Dujima Hotel in Maiduguri, BECCF’s Chairman, Alhaji Zanna Hassan-Boguma, said Ibrahim and his team achieved a lot in fighting Boko Haram and other criminalities in the state.
According to him, the outstanding performance of the officer made him famous in the quest for peace in Borno.
While accepting the award, Ibrahim dedicated it to all members of the defunct SARS in the state, his family as well as the members of the Civilian-JTF who contributed to the successes recorded by the outfit.
On fallen heroes, he said: “I also dedicate this award to our men who lost their lives in the line of duty. I assure them that their sacrifices are not in vain. Our aim is to be part of history of restoring peace to Borno.”
