According to the senators, more than forty Taraba people were murdered in terrorist strikes.
Tuesday, according to Shauntv, terrorists ambushed and killed soldiers who had answered to locals’ appeals for help.
The senate lamented the deaths of the event that occurred in the southern portion of Taraba State on Wednesday.
Following a point of order by Senator Emmanuel Bwacha, this occurred (APC, Taraba South).
Under Order 42 of the modified Senate Standing Orders 2022, Bwacha brought the chamber’s attention to occurrences of banditry and terrorism.
He said that the Terrorist rode motorcycles and killed more than 40 individuals, including soldiers who had been deployed to protect the town.
The congressman consoled Military officials over the death of soldiers and officers killed in the line of duty.
He urged the Federal Government to direct the necessary organisations to deliver relief supplies to the attack’s victims.
The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, urged Nigerians to provide the military with the necessary motivation and intelligence to combat the issue of insecurity.
Lawan stated, “Let me also state that the military and our armed forces are trying their best, and we have no choice but to help them in whatever manner we can.
“Here in the Senate and National Assembly, we have appropriated monies for our military forces, and I believe that this administration has provided them with more resources than any prior administration to combat the many forms and manifestations of national insecurity.
Therefore, we will continue to provide such assistance. In addition, I would like to urge all Nigerians to continue to support our armed forces, who are doing so much despite our inability to adequately provide for them.
“However, I believe that the public’s support for the military forces will inspire and motivate them.”
The Senate then conducted a minute of silence for all those martyred in Southern Taraba by terrorists.
