Declare war on terrorists now - Senate urge Buhari

The Senate The Senate

The Senate has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to declare a full-scale war on bandits terrorising parts of the country after their designation as terrorists.

The request was after the unanimous adoption of a motion, ‘Recent bandits attack on communities in Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger State: A call for action’ moved by the senator representing Niger East, Musa Sani, at plenary on Tuesday, January 18, 2022.

The lawmakers, while lauding Buhari for ordering air bombardment of the terrorists’ bases, also called on “the Federal Government to declare a full-fledged war on these unscrupulous elements since they have been declared as terrorists.”

They also made a call on the Federal Government to create a military base in Shiroro, adding that it would help in bringing back the confidence in the security and safety of the affected communities as well as protect national assets located within the area such as the Shiroro hydro-electric power dam.
