House of Reps Summon President Buhari Over Benue Killings

The House of Representatives has summoned President Muhammadu Buhari over the unending killings in Benue state and other parts of the country.

The motion to summon President Buhari was moved by an All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmaker from Kano State, Mr. Bashir Baballe.

Baballe Bashir (APC, Kano) moved for the amendment of a motion moved by Mark Gbilah (APC, Benue) and the decision was unanimously welcomed by an overwhelming majority of members.

The House also resolved to shut down the National Assembly for three legislative days in solidarity with the people of Benue, Taraba and other states who have suffered attacks in recent times.

Similarly, the House passed a vote of no confidence on all the service chiefs, calling for their immediate replacement.

At least 15 people were killed early Tuesday at a church in the most recent killings in Benue state.
