In his reaction to the motion, deputy Senate president Ike Ekweremadu said: “I rise to second this motion. Let me send my condolences to the families of the victims and all Nigerians living in fear. We need to declare a national state of emergency to enable the government put in place measures to end this problem.”

Also in supporting the motion, Senator Joshua Lidani said: “I lend my support to this motion. Nigeria is becoming a killing field and this will have an effect on investment and tourism. We need to do something drastic, something unusual that we have not done before. We need to mobilize the military to those areas and we should not be shy of asking for help.”
