Senate Summons Buhari Over Killings In Benue, Other States


The Senate has summoned President Muhammadu Buhari to appear before it over the repeated killings in Benue and other parts of the country.

The resolution followed a deliberation of a motion on “Continued Killings in Benue State” sponsored by the lawmaker representing Benue North West, Senator George Akume.

The motion was extensively debated on Thursday in Abuja by the lawmakers who concurred with an earlier summon of the President by the House of Representatives on the same issue.

The killings in the country have become worrisome to state governments and their people, with Benue being the worst hit following the death of no fewer than 35 people since the beginning of the week.

Two priests and 17 other worshippers were killed in Gwer East Local Government Area on Tuesday, while 16 others were killed in separate attacks on Ali Agundu and Tsav council wards of Guma LGA, barely 24 hours later.
