Senate intervenes in alleged extra-judicial killings

April 17, 2019

The Senate has intervened in cases of alleged extra-judicial killings of some Nigerians by some security operatives.

This followed a Point of Order by Senator Dino Melaye at plenary. Presenting the Point of Order, Melaye said it had become necessary to speak out for Nigerians against the backdrop of cases of death caused by trigger-happy security operatives.

The lawmaker said it was high time the senate intervened to save the lives of Nigerians. Melaye, who came under Order 42, said the killings had almost become the order of the day and should be curtailed before it got out of hand.

In his remarks, the President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki, asked Melaye to make full presentation of the motion on Wednesday.

He also ordered the chairmen of the committees Police, Rules and Business to ensure that the motion was reflected in the order paper of Wednesday April 17, for presentation and debate.
