Why I told my people to defend themselves – Emir of Birnin Gwari

Why I told my people to defend themselves – Emir of Birnin Gwari

The Emir of Birnin Gwari in Kaduna State, Zubairu Jibril Mai Gwari II, has revealed why he has been in the frontline of advocacy for self-defence by his people.

According to him, when the people take up the issue of security themselves, they were likely to kill more bandits who harass them in their villages and towns than security operatives could do.

In an interview with Daily Trust Newspaper, the Emir said: “A month ago, in one area called Anguwan Gajere, the bandits attacked a village, and the villagers fought back, in the process they killed more bandits than the people of the town.

“All of a sudden, we were told that the people who came were Fulani men, and Miyetti Allah was in the vanguard of protecting them.

“What we have been preaching to our people is that they should not sit down like fools and watch themselves and their families get killed. If you can do anything to protect yourselves, protect yourself and I will repeat it in front of anybody.

“We can’t be fools to wait for somebody that will not come. Nobody can stop me from telling my people to protect themselves. And that is what we are doing now, because the policemen that are in Birnin Gwari cannot protect. The soldiers that are being brought come and sometimes make matters worse.”
