Senate

The House of Representatives has joined the Senate to urge President Muhammadu Buhari to declare bandits as terrorists.

Recall that the Senate on its own made the call for bandits to be declared as terrorists yesterday.

Bandits have dominated the North-West and parts of the North-Central geopolitical zones killing innocent Nigerians.

Chairman of the House Committee on Defence, Babajimi Benson, at the plenary on Thursday, moved a motion of urgent public importance to urge the chamber to back the Senate.
