The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Saad Abubakar, has cautioned Nigerians to stop blaming an ethnic group for the high level of criminality in the country.
The top traditional ruler, says that every ethnic group in Nigeria has its own groups of criminals.
The sultan issues the caution in Akure, while delivering a lecture at the 2019 Akure Ulefunta in the Ondo State capital.
Labelling an ethnic group as criminals, he warned, will continue to threaten peaceful co-existence among Nigerians.
The sultan also explains that most of the criminal acts in the country are economic-related issues which will reduce if more jobs and wealth are created.
