Senate Attacks FG, Says Only State Police Can Stop Banditry

The senate has berated the federal government over its inability to tackle the alarming rate of insecurity in the country, particularly banditry in the north-west geopolitical zone. It  stressed that introduction of  state police remained the only solution to the menace.

The senate took the position following separate motions moved by senators Emmanuel Bwacha from Taraba state and his colleague from Zamfara state, Kabir Marafa.

While bwacha drew the attention of the red chamber to the inability of the security agencies to tackle the rising cases of kidnapping in Taraba, Marafa lamented the unabated killings of his people by bandits.

The senate president, Bukola Saraki, said apart from the establishment of community or state police, the funding of the Nigeria police force was essential to tackle the menace.

The senate in its resolution commended Nigerians irrespective of cultural, religious and ethnic differences for coming out in large numbers to show solidarity to the plight of their brothers and sisters in Zamfara.
