Senate to Investigate Southern Kaduna Killings

The upper legislature has accepted to investigate the recent killings in Southern Kaduna by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
The Special Assistant to the Senate President on New Media, Bamikole Omisore, said in a statement on Tuesday that immediately the Senate returned from recess it would begin a probe into the killings.
The statement read in part: “The Nigerian Senate, upon resumption, will look into the crises that have led to the wanton loss of lives and property in the Southern part of Kaduna State, in recent times.”
The statement noted that Saraki revealed the Senate’s decision after a twitter user, Chimeze Okoro Ukoha had tweeted: “@Bukolasaraki About 800 Christians massacred in Kaduna and nobody is talking about that. VERY BAD.”
Saraki replied: “Once @NGRSenate resumes, this issue will be addressed to get a clearer picture of what the real situation is and find a lasting solution.
“Every Nigerian life matters, and @ngrsenate will work to ensure that rule of law is always upheld as prescribed by Nigerian Constitution.”
Omisore said in the statement that Saraki is in touch with Senators from that Kaduna state and is constantly getting updates on developments even though the Senate is on recess.
