The House of Representatives is in a rowdy session over a move to compel President Muhammadu Buhari to address the House on the security situation in Nigeria, especially on the killings of over 43 rice farmers in Jere Local Government Area of Borno State.
The motion of Urgent National Importance, moved by members from Borno State, called for the State of Emergency in the nation’s security.
The House is, however, worried by the inability of the military and other security forces to avert the continued killings by Boko Haram insurgents, bandits, and terrorism in the North-East and across the country.
The House, therefore, said that there is an urgent need for the President to reorganise the security architecture of the country, to end the wanton killings in the country.
The House dissolved into an executive session to deliberate on whether or not President Buhari should be invited over the nonabetting security situation in the country.
