Reps minority caucus charges FG to investigate NDA, Plateau attacks

House of Representatives House of Representatives

Following the bandits’ attack at the Nigeria Defence Academy, Kaduna, and at Yelwa Zangam in Jos North Local Government Council of Plateau State, the minority caucus of the House of Representatives has called for a thorough investigation.

The caucus on Wednesday said it was alarmed by the escalation of terrorism across the country, especially that of the NDA which occurred on Monday.

In a press release on Wednesday, tittled: “heightened attacks on military formations and mindless killings and maiming of innocent Nigerians by bandits and terrorists in various parts of Nigeria”, the caucus posited that the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) has failed Nigerians.

The release, which was signed by the caucus leader, Hon. Ndudi Elumelu, noted that Nigeria has been turned into a killing territory as hardly a day passes without gruesome murders.

“The situation has become extremely horrifying in Zamfara, Katsina, Kaduna, Kano, Yobe, Benue, Borno, Niger and other states across our nation where killers and kidnappers are now having a field day raiding communities and killing our compatriots.

“On yesterday night, 35 Nigerians were reportedly massacred in Yelwan Zangam in Jos, Plateau state, barely a week after innocent travellers were ambushed and brutally murdered in the state,” it read.

The lawmakers said they have been distressed by the dastardly act as many Nigerians have been turned into widows, widowers and orphans.

They urged the Federal Government to rise to the occasion of protecting Nigerians.
