In a related report, the details of Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s meeting with Sultan of Sokoto, HRH Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, on Monday, August 24, have emerged as the latter briefed newsmen.
According to The Nation, discussions during the closed-door meeting held at Sir Kashim Ibrahim House in the state capital between El-Rufai and the monarch were on the killings in Southern Kaduna.
Speaking with newsmen after the meeting, the Sultan only said he came to visit his brother. However, El-Rufai noted that the northern ruler was in Kaduna to advise him on how to ensure lasting peace in Southern Kaduna following the incessant attacks.
