The Chief of Margi in Kaduna State, CSP Simon Wabas has described the spate of Insecurity across the country as unfortunate.
He said Insurgency, banditry, kidnapping and cattle rustling especially in Northern Nigeria has affected the socio-economic activities of the region.
The traditional ruler expressed this while speaking to newsmen shortly after the turbanning of 11 members of his cabinet at his palace in Ungwan Maigero, Kaduna 
The Ptil Margi Kaduna appealed to government at all levels to continue to support security agencies in their quest to address the lingering  challenges bedevilling the nation 
The retired Chief Supritendant of Police noted that until government rises to its responsibility of protecting lives and property of citizens, enemies of peace will continue to have a field day
“Security agents are helpless, there is need for government at all levels to provide adequate and modern equipment for them to be able to fight Insecurity in the country,” Wabas said. 
“I wish to call on authorities concerned to rise to their primary responsibilities to save the common man in the country as attack on innocent communities is gradually becoming a daily occurrence,” he added. 
He said, “Nigerians must rise up and defend themselves from any form of attack and not to wait for security agencies as it is clear that the country lacks enough security personnel to man all troubled areas. 
Simon Wabas promise to use his wealth of experience with other ex-service men, local vigilante group, Traditional Rulers and other stakeholders to strategies and  ensure communities regain peace  He enjoined citizens especially in troubled areas to desist from moving lately at night, clubbing and other things that will hamper their security .  The paramount ruler of the Margi nation in Kaduna expressed sadness over the recent abduction of students of Bethel Baptist High School which are mostly children under 18 years.
“Government should redouble its efforts in tackling the menace of Insecurity especially school abductions across the country 
“We must put aside religious sentiments, ethnicity and cultural differences, if truely we want to restore the lost glory of our country.
“We must also unite as one big family and be our brother’s keeper to be able to confront the criminals,” he advised.
Earlier in his address, the Chief of Margi  in Gombe State said job creation will go a long way in stemming the tide of youth restivesness and insecurity. 
“When you engage youth in entrepreneurship programmes, they will not have time to think of anything other than things that will generate money for them legally.
“Government must involve traditional rulers as part of its security measures as they are at the grassroots,” he suggested.
