by Ifreke Inyang
Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has confirmed that they have summoned President Muhammadu Buhari
and called for the sack of service chiefs, over the spate of killings in Benue State and other parts of the country.
Writing on his verified Twitter page, Dogare noted that “we cannot continue to look on as our people are murdered in cold blood”.
“In response to widespread attacks on citizens across the country, @HouseNGR today passed a vote of no confidence on service chiefs and security advisers and called for their replacement.
“We also resolved to summon the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, @NGRPresident @MBuhari in order to answer pertinent questions concerning what the Executive is doing to put a decisive end to the spate of killings in different states of the Federation.
“The foremost responsibility of government is to ensure the safety of lives and property and as a responsive Legislature backed by the mandate of our constituents, we cannot continue to look on as our people are murdered in cold blood,” he wrote.
The decision was unanimously adopted by the Reps after a Kano lawmaker, Baballe Bashir (APC, Kano) moved for the amendment of a motion moved by Mark Gbilah (APC, Benue).
The House also resolved to suspend its plenary for three days (one week), in solidarity with victims of attacks across the country.

Police deploys 10,000 personnel for Buhari’s visit to Bauchi
by Adams Adam
Ahead of President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to Bauchi state on Thursday, the state police command says it is deploying about 10,000 of its personnel for the visit.
The police spokesman in the state, DSP Datti Kamal Abubakar made this known DAILY POST in an interview.
He stated that those deployed will be posted to major streets and locations where the President is expected to visit.
Abubakar cautioned mischief-makers to refrain from causing any trouble as the police in conjunction with other security agencies are well prepared to tackle any mischief.
According to him, the business of protecting lives and property is not only for the police.
He therefore called for restraint against any unlawful act among youths during the President’s stay.
“The President’s visit should be seen as an opportunity to create peace for development in the state,” said Abubakar.
