President Muhammadu Buhari has been urged to declare bandits terrorists.
Additionally, it advised President Bush to take full control of all locations of the bandits and annihilate and eliminate them.
The Red Chamber also urged Buhari to declare all known leaders of the bandits wanted and track them wherever they are for arrest and prosecution.
A motion by Senator Ibrahim Abdullahi Gobir (Sokoto East) and eight others led to the resolutions.
As a result of the current onslaught against bandits in Zamfara State, Sokoto East Senatorial District has now become a safe haven for bandits.
In Dama and Gangara on Saturday, 21 security personnel were killed, as well as an unknown number of civilians from neighboring villages by rampaging bandits.
His gruesome murder illustrates the seriousness of the problem, which he said requires immediate action by declaring a total war on banditry.
There were concerns that the loss of so many trained officers could further erode the numerical strength of the country’s security forces, therefore jeopardizing its security architecture.
As a result of military operations along the Zamfara axis, most of the bandits have relocated to Sabon Birni and Isa local government areas.
Despite the crackdown on bandits in Zamfara State, no concrete measures have been taken in Sokoto State, leaving it totally vulnerable to the activities of the insurgents.
This present military assault on bandits isn’t well coordinated, he says, because it is being conducted only in Zamfara State, not in all the states plagued by banditry.
He said, “When conducting an operation, we should seek holistic results instead of being restrictive. “
During the Senate’s minute of silence, the senators paid tribute to the fallen heroes and civilians who perished in the unwholesome acts of the bandits.
Additionally, the Red Chamber directed the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, and other relevant federal agencies to as a matter of urgency provide all the necessary support to the victims of banditry in Sokoto and elsewhere in the country.
