The Senate on Tuesday called on President Muhammadu Buhari to declare full war against terrorists in the country.
The lawmakers during plenary discussed the spate of insecurity in the country and the recent attack by bandits on a Kaduna-bound train where travellers were killed, and many others injured.
The sponsor of the motion Senator Uba Sani who noted that terrorists have stepped up attacks in some communities and public facilities in Kaduna State, mentioned the terrorist’s attempt to attack the Kaduna airport, killing of fifty persons and kidnap of over 100 persons from several communities in kaduna.
Senator Sani added that the week-long spate of attacks reached a crescendo with Monday’s attack on a Kaduna-bound train carrying over 970 passengers around Kateri-Rijana axis in kaduna leading to the killing of some passengers and abduction of others.
One of the lawmakers, Senator Gabriel Suswam said the terrorist attack on the train is a pointer to the failure of leadership in the country, saying it is time for the appropriate authority to take decisive actions to address insecurity in the country.
