By Muhammad Goronyo, Sokoto

It has been asserted that women have a vital role to play towards addressing the bandits activities in the northern part of the country.

The lecturer with the department of History Usman Danfodio University, Sokoto, Dr. Murtala Rufa’i made the assertion while presenting a paper titled ‘The Current Insecurity In Northern Nigeria And The Role Of Women Towards Curtailing The Issue’ at the monthly Mu’utamar of the state chapter of the Muslim Sisters Organization held at the Conference Hall of Dr. Muhammad Isah Talata-Mafara Institute for Islamic Sciences, Gwiwa lowcost area, Sokoto.

He said such can be achieved if women, especially wives of bandits discourage their husbands to shun the trend. Dr. Rufai also described ignorance, poverty and some of the factors responsible for banditry in the northern part of the country.

The University Don charged Muslims to refrain from acts of disobedience to Allah and pray for Allah’s intervention to curtail the infamous acts bedevilling the society.

Earlier, the National Amirah of the Association, Amina Musa Sakaba said the topic was chosen to seek Allah’s intervention and called on the participants to put into practice all that they have learnt and extend the message to others.

Special prayer was later offered for Allah’s intervention to address the challenges facing the country as well as for the success of leaders at all levels.
