Senate sets up committee to formulate strategies to tackle insecurity



Senate ready to formulate strategies to fight insecurity.

The Senate has decried what it termed as the complete failure of the nation’s security framework.

The red chair chamber blamed the prevailing detrimental security situation across Nigeria for the meaningless destruction of lives and property.

Following a long discussion on the deteriorating state of the nation’s security, the Senate concluded on setting up an ad-hoc committee to expansively assess the security infrastructure in the country.

Some of the senators stated the need to create state police to combat internal insecurity and maintain law and order in the country.

They unanimously agreed that vital steps must be taken by the government to eradicate the looming anarchy, if the nation’s security framework is not looked into.

The Senate, hence, considered a motion entitled “Urgent need to look into killings and arson that took place in Shinkafi Local Government Area of Zamfara State.”

Senator Tijjani Yahaya Kaura (Zamfara North) who sponsored the motion mentioned that an gruesome attack in Zamfara State resulted in the death of 23 people in Mallamawa and Tungar kahau villages.

He added that “Similarly four villages, namely Maikamarimi, Gidan Anna, Mallamawa and Tungar Kahau were burnt to ashes including all their farm produce worth about N385,000,000.”
