Distinguished Sen. Victor Umeh has reacts to the Zamfara Killings, as he move other motions in the Red Chamber Abuja.

“Just last week 39 people were killed. Each time we discuss these things, we discuss them as if nobody has the responsibility to protect Nigerians

“And from what we see regularly, it means that nobody is taking that responsibility to protect lives and properties of Nigerians.

“An officer with the portfolio of protecting lives should be held responsible and note that if any personnel is not competent let them resign.”

“Nigerians want to know who is failing them on the provision of security.
