The Senate has issued a 14-day ultimatum to the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr Ibrahim Idris, to investigate and arrest the perpetrators of the Benue attacks that led to the death of over 73 persons.

The two chambers of the National Assembly on Tuesday, condemned the wanton attacks by suspected herdsmen as they resumed plenary for the first time this year.

On its part, the House of Representatives also noted that it will set up an ad-hoc committee to investigate the killings in Benue and other states of the country and report back in four weeks.

The IGP arrived Benue State on Wednesday, following President Muhammadu Buhari’s order to help restore law and order and prevent further loss of lives and properties.

He said so far, three counter-terrorism units have been deployed alongside mobile policemen to the state and he promised that all those behind the incessant killings will be brought to justice. Channelstv
