Southern Kaduna killings: Mandate military to end crisis now – Reps tell Buhari
The House of Representatives, on Tuesday urged President Muhammadu Buhari to order Military action in Southern Kaduna with the aim of ending the killings in the area.
Recall that the Southern Kaduna has been enmeshed in crisis following lingering clash between Fulani herdsmen and local residents which has led to the death of many.
Responding to the crisis, the lawmakers advised Buhari to order the military to carry out a comprehensive security mapping to identify the base of the attackers in order to end the killings.
The decision followed the adoption of the resolutions of a motion sponsored by a member from Kaduna, Mr Gideon Gwani, who highlighted the recent attacks at Tachirak, Adu and Tsonje villages of Kaura constituency.
Gwani disclosed that despite the 24 hours curfew imposed in the area by the state government and the presence of the military, as well as the police, the attackers have continued to ambush villagers.
“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,” Gwani said.
Following the adoption of the motion, the House mandated its Committees on Army, Air Force, Police Affairs, Interior and Internal Security and Intelligence to come up with solution to the crisis.
