Benue crisis: Senate summons Buhari to joint session

- in Naija News

The Senate Thursday resolved to invite president Muhamadu Buhari to address the joint sitting of the two chambers of the National Assembly on why insecurity has become a commonplace in the country.

The hallowed chamber said he would brief the National Assembly on Wednesday next week

This resolution followed a motion sponsored by senator George Akume representing Benue North East senatorial district.

It would be recalled that the people of Benue State have been victims of extra-judicial killings occasioned by herdsmen almost on daily basis. This gruesome waste of human lives and property even have degenerated into the invasion of churches and killing of two Reverend Fathers two days ago.
