Meanwhile, Istifanus Gyang, the senator representing Plateau North has described the bill seeking to create an agency for repentant Boko Haram terrorists is as an insult to Nigerians.
Senator Gyang in a statement in Jos on Sunday, February 23, condemned and dissociated himself from the bill, The Guardian reports.
He said the bill was an assault on the sensibility of Nigerians in view of the fact that most victims and communities affected by insurgency, banditry and other violent attacks have not gotten the needed support from the government.
Gyang faulted the situation where care and attention for terrorists take precedence over and above that of their victims.
He said the bill had negative implications for the security of the country and called on the Senate to reject it.
In another report, a former head of state, Yakubu Gowon, has begged God to forgive Nigeria over its national sins and the multifaceted problems confronting the country.
Gowon made the plea on Sunday, February 23, at an interdenominational service organised by Nigeria Prays, in the north-east zone, Guardian reports.
He said Nigerians need to overcome the bloodshed, kidnapping, terrorism, banditry, herder-farmer clashes and other challenges faced by the country
