Following rampant killings of Nigerians by bandits and other criminal elements as well as growing issues of kidnappings across the country, the Nigerian Senate has summoned the acting Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu.
The lawmakers are inviting the police brass to come explain the security situation in the country and also brief them about what the Nigerian Police is doing to address the disturbing security threats.
The invitation came after a debate over the killings of two humanitarian workers and the abduction of three others at Kajuru Castle in Kaduna State on April 19.
The lawmakers want the Federal Government to put in place an inter-agency task force, whose assignment will be to tackle cases of banditry and kidnapping in Kaduna, Katsina, Zamfara and Niger states.
The Senate also wants government to mandate security agencies to give special security cover to foreign workers and tourists.
