Angry Rep Members Summon Buhari Over Benue Killings – Gives Thumbs-Down to Service Chiefs

Fueled by an unusual mix of outrage and party unanimity, members of the House of Representatives on Wednesday took swift remedial action to fix the spate of senseless killings in the country.

The House of Representatives summoned President Muhammadu Buhari to explain why the country is no longer safe.

The herdsmen/farmers violence has raised questions about the government’s ability to maintain security in the country, putting pressure on Buhari less than a year before an election he wants to contest.

 The daring decision was welcomed by an overwhelming majority of members of the House.

 

The members also resolve to suspend plenary for 3 consecutive days to protest the killing of Nigerians.

The House also passed a vote of no confidence on all the Service Chiefs and all security advisers to the President while asking the president to declare all killer herdsmen as terrorists.

Suspected herders killed two priests and 14 parishioners in an attack on a Catholic church in Benue state on Monday.
