Members of the House of Representatives on Tuesday met with the Ministers of Interior and Defence, accompanied by Service Chiefs and the Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly matters.

The ministers and Service Chiefs briefed lawmakers on the measures being taken to tackle the grave security challenges facing the country, and brainstormed with them on the issue.

The meeting followed a resolution on the matter last week Thursday, after the lawmakers urged that steps be taken to address and arrest the ugly spread and cases of kidnapping in the country.

The lawmakers called on the Federal Government to declare State of Emergency on kidnapping across the country.

The motion was raised by a member of the House from Ondo State, Representative Babatunde Kolawole and supported by some of his colleagues including; Ado Dogowa, Emmanuel Orker-Jev and Adam Jagaba.

After deliberations on the issue on the floor of the House in Abuja, lawmakers unanimously agreed that the crime had taken an alarming dimension with the kidnapping of school children.

The House called for a security summit that would fashion an effective response to the kidnapping phenomenon.
