Borrowing a leaf from the regional security outfit created by the Southwest governors – Amotekun, the Coalition of Northern Groups has resolved to form its own regional security outfit codenamed ‘Shege-ka-Fasa’.
It is an Arewa Security Initiative to secure their people’s lives.
‘Shege-ka-Fasa’ will serve as extra measures for self-protection in the prevailing insecurity situation in the region.
The groups said: “In the prevailing circumstances, the North is even more genuinely entitled to be angry at the rate its people are attacked, killed, towns and villages vandalized, innocent citizens including children abducted, and terrorized, families traumatized and communities displaced on a daily basis.
“All this while, the North has persevered in a dangerous security environment fueled by outside interests that thrive on the supply of such deadly merchandise as hard drugs and other harmful substances and the Proliferation of arms into the region.
