Northern govs, CNG clash over Operation Shege Ka Fasa


Northern governors and the Coalition of Northern Groups on Sunday clashed over Operation Shege Ka Fasa, a security outfit, whose symbols were unveiled by the CNG on Wednesday. The Plateau State Governor and Chairman of the Northern Governors’ Forum, Mr Simon Lalong, said northern governors were not part of the security outfit.

But the CNG on Sunday said that its decision not to consult northern governors was deliberate, saying the governors would have swept it under the carpet if they were consulted. The coalition also hit the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji  Sa’ad Abubakar,  and the Governor of Kano State, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, because of their stand on Operation Shege ka Fasa.

The CNG, while unveiling Operation Shege Ka Fasa’s symbols in Kaduna on Wednesday, had said that the security outfit would tackle kidnapping, banditry and other crimes in all the northern states. The coalition move came amidst the setting up of Operation Amotekun by the South-West governors after initial opposition by the Federal Government.

The South-West attorneys general met on Friday in Ibadan, where they adopted a draft bill on Amotekun.
