Senate summons security chiefs as insecurity worsens in Nigeria

 

The Nigerian Senate has summoned security chiefs for an
interaction, following the escalating insecurity in the country, with a
specific date to be decided later.

 

Rising from a closed-door meeting that lasted over three
hours, the senate condemned the increasing incidents of kidnappings, banditry
and the outright murder of innocent citizens by criminals.

 

Senate Leader, Michael Bamidele Opeyemi, revealed that the
motion on insecurity was sponsored by all 109 senators due to its paramount
importance.

 

Senate President Godswill Akpabio, in his remarks, lamented
the continuous banditry and kidnappings.

 

He noted that the situation has reached a point where
middlemen are involved in collecting ransom on behalf of kidnappers.

 

He strongly condemned recent attacks in Plateau by bandits
and the gas explosion in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State.

 

Akpabio added that a specific date will be determined for
the security chiefs to appear before the Senate.

 

The lawmakers observed a one-minute silence in honour of
those who lost their lives in the attacks and the Ibadan explosion before
adjourning until Tuesday, February 6, 2024.
