The Emir of Gwandu and Chairman of the Kebbi Council of Chiefs, Muhammadu Bashar, has blamed rampant satanic behaviours for the current security challenges in the country.
According to him, behaviours such as homosexuality, rape and lesbianism are the causative factors of insecurity in the country.
Bashar made this comment while addressing Muslim faithful after the Eid-el-Kabir prayer in Birnin Kebbi, the state capital, on Sunday.
“The society today is bedevilled by cases of rape, homosexuality, lesbianism, kidnapping and rampant killings which resulted into the present insecurity Nigeria is faced with,” he said.
He therefore charged the general public, especially parents, to instill discipline and respect in their children by giving them sound education.
“I give glory to God for giving us the opportunity to witness another Sallah.
“The present ills in our society are also due to indiscipline and too much love for material wealth,” he said.

Bashar warned that unless the people feared to sin against God, and parents remained committed to imbibing good family values, the country would continue to face instability.
The Emir also called on the people to be compassionate and supportive to the needy, saying that those who were able to sacrifice animals during the Eid should endeavour to share the meat with the poor and other needy persons.
He prayed to Allah to continue to bless the country and give leaders the wisdom to better the lives of people.
In his Sallah message, Governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi, prayed for peaceful return of pilgrims from Saudi Arabia.
