Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III has said that whoever picks up arms to kill a human being is an animal.

While speaking at the 2017 National Security Summit on Framer and Pastoralist clashes, the Sultan maintained that those who cause havoc across the country should also be referred to as animals.

He condemned the incessant clashes between the farmers and herdsmen across states of the federation, the Sultan said: “We don’t support anybody picking up arms to kill another person."

He further said; “We must be honest with ourselves. Our problem is not with organizing symposia, summits, and fora on challenges of security”.

“Our problem is non-implementation of the several decisions and recommendations from such summits due to dishonesty and selfishness”.

He contend that, “You cannot claim freedom of expression and insult everybody; you cannot claim freedom of religion and cause problems.”
