Reps urge security agencies to tackle killings, kidnappings in Plateau

The House of Representatives has called on the military, police and other security agencies to tackle the increasing isolated killings and kidnappings in communities of Pankshin/Kanke/Kanam federal constituency of Plateau State.

This followed a motion during Wednesday’s plenary session by Rep. Yusuf Adamu Gagdi, who drew his colleagues’ attention to the growing insecurity in his constituency.

Gagdi lamented that there have been several documented incidents of deliberate threats, kidnapping and assaults targeting members of his constituency.

The lawmaker expressed concern that Kanam forest has now become a haven for bandits and Boko Haram terrorists as a result of an influx of people from other states.

The House urged the Chief of Defence Staff to establish two military bases in Kanam; one each in Gun-Gagdi and Garga axis respectively.

The House also called on the Inspector-General of Police and the Commandant General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps to deploy additional personnel to the affected areas in Gun-Gagdi, Garga, Pankshin and Kanke.
