End Southern Kaduna killings now, Reps tell Buhari
MEMBERS of the House of Representatives, yesterday, advised President Muhammadu Buhari to order the military and the police to be more proactive in identifying exact areas of the attacks in Southern Kaduna and end the killings immediately.
They also called on the military to carry out a comprehensive security mapping to identify the base of the attackers in order to combat the menace.
The lawmakers made the declaration following the adoption of the resolutions of a motion sponsored by Mr Gideon Gwani (Kaduna, APC), who highlighted the recent attacks at Tachirak, Adu and Tsonje villages of Kaura constituency, which claimed 13 lives.
Gwani expressed concern that despite the 24 hours curfew imposed in the area and the presence of the military and police, gunmen continue to attack villages and unleash mayhem.
He said: “Recall the resolution of June 24, 2015 where the House urged the executive arm of government to set up a high powered committee to comprehensively address the incessant killings in Kaduna State and other parts of the country, which has not been complied with.”
The House during plenary mandated its Committees on Army, Air Force, Police Affairs, Interior and Internal Security and Intelligence to analyse the situation and proffer solutions to the security challenges in the area.
The committees are expected to report back in four weeks.
