President Muhammadu Buhari is set to appear before the House of Representatives over the Borno Massacre.
The House may today reach a resolution to invite the President to give explanations on the true security situation of the country.
Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila made the announcement while making his remarks on the Borno killings recently.
The motion sponsored by 11 lawmakers most of whom are from Borno State is currently underway on the floor at Tuesday plenary.
This is coming on the heels of the massacre of over 43 rice farmers in Zabarmari village, Jere Local Government near Maiduguri, in Borno State over the weekend by suspected Boko Haram insurgents.
The killing which attracted widespread condemnations has however resumed debate on the manner of security machinery that’s currently in place in Nigeria.
Though the government has consistently mouthed a decimation and technical defeat of the insurgents, contemporary fatalities and massacres have benumbed the claim.
The House has for the umpteenth time called for the sack of the Service Chiefs whose tenures have since elapsed but President Buhari whose prerogative it is to relieve them of their appointments prefers otherwise.
Gbajabiamila in his remarks however said that “Now, is the time to ask difficult questions. We will consider intervention for the people of Zarbamari attacks”.
The House is set for the debate
