The House of Representatives yesterday summoned the Inspector-General of Police and the Commander-General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps over the rising incidences of accidental discharge by security personnel.
This followed the adoption of a motion by Deputy Whip, Nkeiruka Onyejeocha (APC, Abia) and two other lawmakers. The lawmakers wanted to know measures being taken to forestall the incidences. The house also resolved that culprits face the weight of the law.
It mandated the IGP to investigate and bring to justice, the culprit in the killing of a gubernatorial candidate in Imo State, Ndubusi Emenike and other killings attributed to wrongful use of firearms by security agents.
