Nigeria’s Federal House of Representatives has resolved to probe the level of operational strength of the nation’s security forces, including the regular army, police and para-military personnel.
This is coming on the heels of the two simultaneous bomb blasts, by suspected members of the dreaded Boko Haram, which claimed the lives of 21 people and wounded 52 others yesterday at a busy shopping mall in Abuja.
The House which made the resolution at the today sitting, also urged the police to quickly mobilise reinforcement of mobile policemen to troubled communities in Sanga local government area of Kaduna state where more than hundred lives have been lost from Tuesday till today.
The House also endorsed motions moved by Hon. Haruna Musa Fatahi (APC, Kano) and Uche Ekwunife (APGA, Anambra) for the immortalization of late Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero and erstwhile Director General of the National Administration for Foods, Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC).
