Senator Shehu Sani in his contribution called on the Federal Government to intervene by providing relief to the people affected by the violence.

Senator Philip Gyunka argued that the current mayhem is a “calculated attempt”, alleging that the Governor, Nasir El-Rufai “perceived something and that is why he travelled and he quickly ran out. When he came in what has he done? These are issues we need to ask and Nigerians need to know.”

He declared that the Nigerian government owes it to the country to give “findings of the weapons imported and who were those responsible for it while meting punishment on the offenders would serve as a deterrent”.

In its prayers, the red chamber urged the relevant security agencies to investigate the cause of the incident with a view to bringing the perpetrators to justice as well as providing permanent measures for stopping such from happening in future.

The Senate also urged the Kaduna State and Federal Governments to speed up the recovery of the paramount ruler of Agom Adara, Maiwada Galadima.
