 Senate has condemned in strong terms the killings of innocent students and people in Mubi, Adamawa State and consequently urged the federal government to apprehend the perpetrators of the act and bring them to book.

This resolution was reached after a debate on a motion sponsored by Senator Muhammed Bindo Jubrila representing Adamawa North, on the brutal killing of over twenty students of the Federal Polytechnic Mubi and other persons on Monday.

Senator Jubrila lamented that the security situation in the country is very alarming while urging the Federal Government to find urgent solution before it gets out of hand.

In his contribution, Dputy Senate Majority Leader, Senator Abdul Ningi said  that the political class are to blame for unrest in the country especially when people who are not capable to rule find themselves on the helm of affairs.

Senator Ningi also stated that security agencies are overstretched and called on Nigerians to rise-up to champion the right course for the nation especially now that the value of human life is absent in the minds of people.

However, the Senate President Senator David Mark canvasses for capital punishment for terrorists in the country, saying that unless that is done people hungry for blood of their fellow humane being would not desist from their bad act.

After exhaustive deliberations on the motion, the senate observed a minute silence in honour of the the deceased.
