Reps member urgesfed govt to declareemergency oninsecurity

By | On June 11, 2017 (4 months ago)


Pally Iriase, Deputy Whip, House of

Representatives, has called on the Federal

Government to declare state of emergency on

insecurity as killings, kidnappings and raping

continue unabated across the county.

Iriase made the call on Sunday in Abuja while

speaking with newsmen. He appealed to the

government and security operatives to check the

activities of the bandits killing, raping and

kidnapping innocent people in Edo state.

The lawmaker, who refused to call the bandits

Fulani herdsmen, said that residents of Owan East

and West, Etsako and Akoko local government

areas were under siege by the bandits.

He said that the bandits carried sophisticated

weapons like AK47 and machine guns.

Iriase, who represents Owan East/West Federal

Constituency, alleged that the military and police

had their barracks in the areas where these

`agents of death’ carry out their activities.

He contended that there may be some

connections between Boko Haram insurgents

dislodged from the North-East and the bandits

going by the sophisticated weapons they carry.

He said that the police with regular weapons and

vigilance group carrying locally made guns could

not match the bandits with their sophisticated

weapons. The lawmaker advised the military and

other security agencies to collaborate to curtail

the activities of the invaders.

He said: “I will support the call for state of

emergency on security. “If state of emergency is

declared nationwide, all these statements and

threats will be taken care of.

“These bandits may well be the terrorist gangs

dislodged from the North-East judging by the

sophisticated weapons they carry and the way

they are kidnapping and collecting ransom from

victims.

“If their activities are not checked, what we are

experiencing in the North-East may be transferred

to South-south.” Asked if the bandits were not

local people disguising as Fulani herdsmen, Iriase

said, “these people are not local people.

“If they are, they will be carrying local weapons;

but these people carry AK47 and machine guns

and they are sharp shooters.” He urged the

federal government to take urgent step to address

the development.

He alleged that the ransom the bandits were

collecting was being used to fund other camps to

execute deadly attacks. Iriase described the quit

notice issued by Arewa youths to Ibos living in the

north as “the most irresponsible statement ever

made by a group.’’
