Members of the House of Representatives have again voiced their displeasure over the continued killings by bandits and terrorist groups in the country.
They, therefore, called on the Federal Government to engage the services of mercenaries to supplement the efforts of security agencies in containing the situation.
In addition to this, the lawmakers renewed their call on President Muhammadu Buhari to declare a state of emergency in the security sector.
While some called for the sacking or resignation of the National Security Adviser, Major General Babagana Monguno (retired) and the Minister of Defence, Major General Bashir Magashi (retired.), others called for the shutdown of the National Assembly, partly blaming the federal parliament for not doing enough in its oversight of the Executive arm.
They took the decisions during the plenary on Wednesday at the lower chamber of the National Assembly in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
These followed debates on another set of two motions bordering on the recent attacks by bandits and killer-herdsmen in Kanam Local Government Area of Plateau State on Sunday and in Mbadwem and Tiortyu communities in Guma and Tiortyu Council Areas of Benue State, on Monday night respectively.
