The Upper chamber of the Nigerian National Assembly, also talks hard on the implications of insecurity in the country which would definitely discourage foreign investors aside loss of lives and properties, if it continues.



The plenary which was headed by Ekweremadu on Tuesday, made him speak while ruling a motion moved by Representative Nasarawa South, Senator Suleiman Adokwe over the unending killings by the herdsmen in his senatorial district.


Senator Adokwe said while addressing the house, 


“Throughout the weekend to this moment, herdsmen have unleashed mayhem on the people of my senatorial district, leaving many dead bodies, numerous injured persons and hundreds of thousands of internally displaced persons.
 The victims are largely the Tiv speaking ethnic nationalities, with a reported dead toll of 32 persons, and we are still counting.”The attacks  was described by the senator as “a well -coordinated and simultaneous carnage” across Awe, Obi, Keana and Doma Local Government areas of the southern senatorial district.
“The tragedy is that for four days running, this mayhem has continued unhindered, unchecked, unstopped by any arm of the law and security enforcement agencies.
“Indeed, right under the nose of the armed forces and the police, this killing is sustained by sheer negligence or refusal to act by the security agencies. It is very sad that in Nigeria, with all the security forces, a whole senatorial district will go on being punished by militia and no action coming from government,” Adokwe said.
The Law makes it clear that issue of security now in Nigeria is not just the responsibility of the Armed Forces but all man for himself. Says this while addressing the house .
