Northern groups launch Arewa version of Amotekun

Shege ka Fasa, a security outfit created by the Coalition of Northern Groups, CNG, was launched yesterday to operate as the northern regional security outfit similar to Amotekun.

The CNG said the reason for setting up the outfit was to complement the police and military in efforts to deal with the security problem in the region.

The outfit would also  carry out  specific and general task that would realign attitude and thinking of the public with the ideals and objectives of the founding fathers of the region.

Presenting what was described as the northern regional security initiative at Arewa House, Kaduna, spokesman of the group, Abdulazeez Suleiman, said the security initiative was subject to ratification by the northern governors.

He said:   “For the past 12 years, the North has struggled with disabling challenges that include dwindling economy, rising poverty and more worrying, a crippling security situation that has taken a huge toll on lives, property and the overall cohesion of the region.

“The situation manifested in 2008 in the form of a deadly insurgency from the Northeast and within a short time, spread to other parts of the region and virtually turned the entire region into a battlefield.

“While the insurgency raged, other disturbances were created in the region in the form of cattle rustling that pitched northern communities against each other.

‘’A new dimension was introduced to the farmers/herders conflict which gradually deteriorated into an uncontrollable proportion and deepened the artificial rift between communities in the region.”

Suleiman said the trend suddenly metamorphosed into deadly armed banditry and kidnapping for ransom which is recycled for arms and drugs.

“This is in addition to another frustrating trend of the theft and forced trafficking of northern children to other parts of the country for reasons that are largely dubious.

“The culmination of these security challenges has for the past decade turned the entire region into a house of horror with violent killings reported on a daily basis, communities displaced with formal and informal IDP camps spreading across the region.

“The situation today, on most northern highways, innocent travelers are waylaid, robbed and abducted, towns and villages attacked and sacked by bandits who have created an atmosphere of palpable fear across the region,” he stated.

I guess the only logical question that rises for me is, WHO SHALL RAISE AMOTEKUN FOR EASTERN NIGERIA?

Clearly the governors of the "South East" and "South South" are not interested or sincere about any REGIONAL security organization in the old Eastern Nigeria. The old West has theirs, the Old North has one now.

When will the East get its own?

In the north, you never get "North East", "North West" or "North Central". You still get just NORTH.
Every person from so called "South East" and "South South" should ponder on this, and remember it when they start lamenting about "marginalisation" and similar things.

The Biafra Security Service launched by IPOB was sabotaged and rejected by the governors of the region.
Why are they not replacing the BSS with something that achieves the same result as other two remaining founding regions of Nigeria are doing?

My smart theory is that current events in Nigeria will finally expose the politicians from the regions, to show which of them actually love their regions, and which are charlatans and thieves using the people to enrich themselves.

Kudos to the Northern group for creating this outfit.
It means that very soon, all these killers will not have a base in the North.

I hope they don't find that base in the Eastern Nigerian vacuum, because nature abhors vacuums.
