Benue Killings: Reps To Summon Buhari, Suspend Sitting For 3 Days


The House of Representatives has resolved to summoned President Muhammadu Buhari over the security situation in the country.

The House will suspend sitting for three days in solidarity with Nigerians over the killings in the country.

This follows the recent killing of 19 people including two priests by suspected herdsmen in Ayar-Mbalom community, Gwer East Local Government Area of Benue State.

The armed men reportedly stormed the St. Ignatius’ Catholic Church, during an early morning mass on Tuesday, killing the priests and other worshipers.

Another 16 were repotedly killed on Wednesday in Ali Agundu and Tsav council wards of Guma Government Area (LGA) of Benue State.

It was revealed that the Wednesday assailants stormed Ali Agundu, a border settlement with Daudu where two Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camps are located, at about 2.00 am and killed 13 persons. And that while this was ongoing, another set of suspected armed herdsmen killed 3 people in Tsav council ward, also in the LGA.

The green chamber has asked the President to declare the killer herdsmen terrorists.

They are also calling for the sack of the Service Chiefs.
