Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, on Tuesday said that the senate would commence investigation into the latest killings in southern Kaduna State.
In a statement signed by his Special Assistant on New Media, Mr. Bamikole Omishore in Abuja, Saraki said the Senate will on resumption from recess on Jan. 10, make the issue a priority.
Omishore said Saraki made the statement while responding to a tweet posted by one Chimeze Ukoha on the Kaduna killings.
The statement quoted Ukoha as saying that “about 800 Christians were massacred in Southern Kaduna and nobody is talking about that, “very bad.”
It quotes Saraki as responding that “once @ngrsenate resumes, this issue will be addressed to get a clearer picture of what the real situation is and find a lasting solution.
“Every Nigerian life matters and @ngrsenate will work to ensure that rule of law is always upheld as prescribed by the Nigerian Constitution”.
The statement said that Saraki was already in touch with Senators from Kaduna State and that he was constantly getting updates on developments.
Recall that groups of persons said as Fulani herdsmen have repeatedly killed minority Christians in the southern flank of Kaduna State in several deadly attacks and burnt houses of the Christians.
