The senator representing Plateau central, Joshua Dariye earlier today co-sponsored a motion from jail.

Naija News learnt that the lawmaker representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Senator Shehu Sani, sponsored the motion, together with 107 other lawmakers, including Senator Joshua Dariye, who is currently in jail. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission had prosecuted Dariye for the fraud he committed while he ‎was governor of Plateau State.

Naija news also understands  that at the plenary  the upper chamber of the National Assembly considered and adopted the motion entitled, ‘Senseless Killing of a Briton and the Abduction of Three Others in a Holiday Resort in Kaduna State by Armed Bandits.’

Unanimously adopting the motion, the lawmakers resolved to observe a minute’s silence in honour of the departed souls, while urging the security authorities to intensify the search for the perpetrators and bring them to book.

The Senate also urge the Federal Government to set up an inter-agency task force to tackle cases of banditry and kidnapping in Kaduna, Katsina, Zamfara and Niger states, while urging security agencies to give special security cover to foreign workers and tourists.

The lawmakers also urged security agencies to “immediately deploy the use of drones and interceptors in tracking kidnappers asking for ransom,” while advising community and traditional rulers and all stakeholders to cooperate with security agencies.

Other resolutions were to “urge telecommunication companies to provide security agencies with information in areas where there are kidnappings; and urge Senate to send a delegation to the British embassy and condole the British Government.”
