The Nigerian Senate has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to declare a state of emergency over escalating insecurity across Nigeria.

OGBONGE NEWS reports that the upper chamber made the call this morning following the kidnap of students and teachers of Government Science Secondary School, Kagara, Niger State by gunmen on Wednesday morning.

The lawmakers further called on the President Buhari-led administration to implement the various recommendations of the Senate on how to tackle insecurity.

These resolutions of the Senate followed a motion on a matter of urgent public importance on the incident by Senator representing Niger East, Mohammed Sani Musa.

Senate President Ahmad Lawan said the frequent incidents of kidnapping of students could reverse the gains made in school enrollment over the years in the North.

He said parents would no longer yield to persuasion to enroll their wards in school with the level of insecurity plaguing the area especially the kidnap of school children.

In his contribution, Senator Mohammed Birma Enagi (Niger South) described the Federal Government as “incompetent” in dealing with the rising insecurity in the country.
