House of Representatives has called on security operatives to immediately secure the release of the remaining 30 female students of the Federal University Gusau, Zamfara State who are still in the hands of their captors.
This followed the adoption of a motion under matters of urgent public importance, moved by Hon. Kabiru Ahmadu from Zamfara state on Tuesday.
Hon. Ahmadu, in leading the debate, expressed worry over the fate of the remaining girls in the hands of these bandits.
He also bemoaned the gruesome manner in which these bandits continue to terrorize citizens in the Northwest region.
The lawmaker called on the Chief of Defense Staff and the Inspector General of Police to immediately ensure the release of the girls from the bandits and that the relevant Committees of the House should ensure compliance.
Hon. Inuwa Garba in his contribution stated that the situation is disturbing as academic institutions seem unsafe as is the intention of the bandits, especially in the Northern region of Nigeria.
He appealed to the northern governors to call a high stake meeting to ensure this menace is nipped for the good of girl child education as they seem to be the primary targets of these bandits.
Hon. Bappa Misau bemoaned the wide spread of these types of abductions in different parts of Northern Nigeria.
He called on the House to compel the security agencies to be more proactive in carrying out their duties of ensuring safety of Nigerians. He frowned at all incidences of treating these bandits with kid gloves.
Hon. Etabnabene Ben called for the establishment of State/community policing to fish out local bandits.
He also advocated for local government autonomy where the Chairmen and Councillors can stand as the chief security officers of the locality and coordinate security at the grassroots.
The motion was voted on, adopted and referred to the committees on Legislative Compliance, Defence, Army, Airforce as well as that on Police.
