Senate Summons Service Chiefs Over Rising Spate Of Killings, Kidnappings


0

The Senate has summoned service chiefs over the spate of insecurity in the country.

The call by the lawmakers came after an emergency session on Tuesday, 30 January, the first legislative day of the year.

TheFact Daily notes that from the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in Abuja to Mangu in Plateau State as well as other parts of the country, kidnappings and killings have been recorded recently, with the latest in the dastardly act of criminals being the murder of two traditional rulers in Ekiti State — the Onimojo of Imojo-Ekiti, Oba Olatunde Olusola; and the Elesun of Esun-Ekiti, Oba David Ogunsola.

The two monarchs were killed when they were returning from a meeting in Irele-Ekiti on Monday, the same day gunmen reportedly abducted six children, three teachers, and a bus driver in the State.

The Senate had gone into the executive session after the leader, Senator Opeyemi Bamidele, raised a motion on behalf of the Senators on the security situation in the country.

After about two hours behind closed doors, the Senate then reconvened and resolved to invite the service chiefs next week, over the spate of insecurity in the country.
