Investigate Kaduna killings, Reps charge IGP, DSS

The House of Representatives has called on the Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, the Department of State Services and heads of other security agencies to probe the recent killings of innocent Nigerians in Ambe in the Sanga Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

Six persons were reportedly killed in Ambe, a settlement in the Arak chiefdom, on Sunday when gunmen invaded the community, shooting sporadically at innocent citizens.

At the resumption of plenary on Tuesday, the member representing Jemaa/Sanga Federal Constituency, Kaduna State, Amos Daniel via a motion on matters of urgent public importance noted that “At about 7 PM on Sunday, May 5, 2024, in Ambe, in the outskirts of Gwantu, Sanga Local Government Area of Kaduna State following the attack from two gunmen who arrived on two motorcycles at the birthday celebration venue of their aged father, killed six people and injured many.”

The lawmaker also noted that youths in the area summoned the courage to apprehend one of the gunmen with his motorcycle and later handed him over to soldiers on guard, adding that some of the victims of the attack are currently receiving treatment at the University of Jos Teaching Hospital.

The Peoples Democratic Party lawmaker further maintained that since the unfortunate incident, residents of the area have been left traumatized and unable to carry out their daily businesses in fear of the unknown.

Following the adoption of the motion, the House observed a minute silence in honour of the dead and called on the IGP to deploy more police personnel to secure the area.

It also urged the IGP, the military and DSS to go the whole distance to ensure that the culprits are arrested and brought to book, while also calling on the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation and the National Emergency Management Agency to provide food and non-food items to the affected victims.

The House further mandated its Committees on Police, Army and Emergency and Disaster Preparedness to ensure compliance.
