Ooni made this call at the 2023 exercise Haski Hiyu lecture series, themed: “Combating Internal Security Challenges through Effective Utilisation of Traditional Institution,” organised by the Armed Forces command and staff college, Jaji Kaduna state.

The monarch noted that failure to do so, Nigeria won’t effectively tackle emerging and contemporary security challenges confronting the country.

Ooni stressed that the failure of the security agencies and the government to assign specific constitutional roles to traditional rulers was largely responsible for the lingering insecurity in the country.
