The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar, who is a member of the National Peace Committee, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari not to spare anyone found guilty of corruption.
Speaking at the National Security Conference on: Community Partnership Approach to Internal Security and Crime Management organised by Police and The Sun newspapers, in Abuja, the Sultan said: “All found culpable of corruption should not only forfeit their assets but should go to jail. We are 100 per cent in support of your fight against corruption in the country.”
The Sultan and other members of the peace committee led by former head of state Abdulsalami Abubakar, have come under fire in recent days over allegations that they are lobbying for a soft landing for former government officials who may have looted resources.
He called on the police and other security agencies to join in the crusade against corruption.
Abubakar said the police needed to be repositioned for the 21st-century and to have their welfare reviewed.
According to him, the traditional rulers had played vital roles in maintaining security in their various communities.
He urged all Nigerians to close ranks with the police to ensure adequate security in the country.
