The rate of killings in Nigeria has become a source of concern to the leadership of the Red Chamber with Saraki raising concerns about recent developments.
Senate President, Dr.Bukola Saraki has lamented over carnage in Zamfara state where scores of people were killed.
He said, the Senate was getting tired of one minute silence often observed in honour of the dead in Nigeria.
In his apparent abhorrence to incidences of killing across the nation and lately, in Zamfara communities, he noted that the ugly trend must not continue.
Reacting to a motion sponsored by Senator Tijjani Kaura representing Zamfara North Senatorial district, Saraki posited that drastic measures must be taken to forstall further killing of innocent citizens anywhere in Nigeria.
‘Distinguished Colleagues, I must say therefore, that we are tired of observing one minute silence for the dead in this chambers.”
“How long do we continue? Something must be done. Enough to these killings”, he insisted.
