Honourable Ahmed berates security agencies over incessant insecurity

He went further to slam security agencies for their failure to surmount recent attacks berating them that they had failed despite all the foreign training and resources at their disposal.

Ahmed also argued that since the emergence of President Muhammadu Buhari the service chief has been replaced and wonders why Monguno had not been changed.

While making his point known at the plenary, he made reference to the recent train attack, airport attack, and the frequent rate of kidnapping along the Abuja-Kaduna highway.

The honourable said:

“Mr. Speaker this madness has to stop. It simply has to stop. You travel by road you’re kidnapped; you go by train, you’re kidnapped, last week the airport was attacked by bandits; you sit at home you’re kidnapped, you send your children to school they are kidnapped.”

“What do we tell our people that elected us? Do we just fold our arms? I want to use this opportunity again and I am calling on the national security adviser — he must be removed.”
