OrderPaperToday – Senator Shehu Sani (PRP, Kaduna) has revealed that the worsening state of insecurity in the country is forcing citizens to migrate to the neighbouring Niger Republic as displaced persons.
He made the revelation after he raised a point of order during today’s plenary on a fresh case of kidnaping in his senatorial district.
According to him, “last Sunday, gunmen stormed a church in the outskirts, in my constituency and took away the Pastor and other worshippers; they have still not been traced. These are parts of the problems that we continually face but I must appreciate the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) for the raid on the hideouts of these criminals along Abuja-Kaduna [road] and weapons and ammunition that have been seized.
“Still, danger is living with us. Some issues will not go away by wishes; they will go only by action. In relation to that is what happened yesterday in Katsina state where there were gunmen attacks in three local governments and video clips of Nigerians moving towards Niger Republic as Internally Displaced Persons. This is the low we have become as a nation and I believe we should not get tired of bringing these issues (to the Senate)”
