Insecurity: Senate meets Wike, FCT CP behind closed-door

The Senate is currently meeting with the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, and the Commissioner of Police, Benneth Igwe

The Senate at the Wednesday plenary resolved at about 12:20 pm to move the first order of the day to another legislative day to allow for a meeting with the duo in a Committee of the Whole in a closed-door session.

Consequently, a motion was moved by the Deputy Senate Leader, Oyelola Ashiru, and seconded by the Minority Leader in this respect.

Ashiru said, “The minister and the commissioner will brief us on the modalities of security in the FCT.”

The Senate, on Wednesday, February 28, summoned Wike, and the Commissioner of Police, Igwe, over the murder of Chris Agidy, an aide to Senator Ned Nwoko, by some kidnappers.

The Senate resolved that the FCT Minister and the police commissioner should appear to brief the Red Chamber on the increasing cases of kidnapping in Nigeria’s capital city.

The Senate resolution followed a motion sponsored by Senator Nwoko on the kidnapping and killing of his senior legislative assistant, Agidy.

Agidy was reportedly kidnapped along with 19 others in the Galadimawa area of Abuja in November 2023.
