Aliyu Wamakko-SultanThe Sultan of Sokoto and President-General, Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, Alhaji Saad Abubakar III and Gov. Aliyu Wamakko of Sokoto State have advocated the creation of State Police in the country to tackle insurgency.

The duo spoke in Sokoto on Sunday, when the Sultan paid the traditional Sallah homage to the governor.

According to Abubakar III, state governments were already spending huge sums of money to provide vehicles and security gadgets among others, to enhance the operational capabilities of security agencies in the country.

“Most state governments, if not all, provide one form of assistance or the other to security agencies; they build or renovate offices for them.

“The time for the creation of state police is now”, the sultan said, adding that the creation of state police would help in addressing current security challenges in parts of the nation.

In his response, Wamakko said state police, when created, would assist in reducing difficulty currently faced by policemen often deployed to states other than theirs.

“State governments have continued to suffer so much as a result of security challenge, the security of lives and property will be enhanced if state police is created”, Wamakko said.
