Members of the Minority Caucus in the House of Representatives have said that Nigerians do not deserve the torment which has become their plight in recent times.
Their lament which was contained in a statement by the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Ndudi Elumelu, was hinged on the recent rise in terrorist operations and the escalation of bandits’ attacks in the nation.
“Nigerians do not deserve to go through this form of harrowing experience,” the caucus’ statement partly read, even as the lawmakers urged the All Progressives Congress (APC) led government to take drastic steps to save Nigerians from insecurity.
The opposition members in the lower chamber further stated that they were alarmed, particularly by Monday’s invasion of the Nigeria Defence Academy (NDA) resulting in the killing and abduction of some military officers.
They decried the heightened attacks on military formations and mindless killings and maiming of innocent Nigerians by bandits and terrorists in various parts of the country, despite the assurances of the present administration.
