The Issues On Security Must Be Taken Seriously, Says Saraki

By Terfa Naswem

The Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki says that the issues on security of Nigeria must be taken seriously by all security agencies irrespective of who is involved.

Senator Joshua Lidani cited order 43, spoke of the Senate’s ultimatum to IGP Ibrahim Idris to arrest those involved in the Benue killings within 14 days and states that since IGP has not arrested anybody nor reported back to the Senate, the Committee on Police should summon the IGP and report back to the Senate on Tuesday, 6th February, 2018.

Saraki said that Senate passed the ultimatum because there was great concern by some of them. Such resolutions from the chamber must be taken seriously. That it goes beyond issuing ultimatum, the issues on security must be taken seriously. He directed the Senate Committe on Police and Intelligence to Summon the IG to be able to make an explanation to them.

“We must make it very clear to the security agencies that those kind of ultimatums cannot be taken lightly. People think we are just going to sweep this under the carpet, the answer is NO. We are not going to stop until people are made accountable. Even  as the President (Buhari) said in his letter, he has told IGP to ensure speedy prosecution and I hope that IGP takes this seriously because definitely this is a matter that affects the whole country and something needs to be done. We will make sure that happens”, he said.
