Senate mourns travellers burnt to death by bandits 




The Senate on Wednesday mourned the deaths of travellers burnt to ashes Monday by suspected bandits on their way to Gayan in Kaduna state.

The travellers numbering twenty-three, according to reports, were attacked in Angwan Bawa, Sabin Gari Local Government Area of Sokoto State.

The victims were said to be on their way to the southern part of the country when they were intercepted and killed by the bandits.

Coming under order 43 of the Senate rules, Senator Ibrahim Gobir (Sokoto East), drew the attention of his colleagues to the gruesome murder of the travellers.

He lamented the spate of killings, which, he warned, were alarming and on the increase.

He called on the military and security agencies to immediately intervene by deploying personnel to secure the lives of residents in states affected by the activities of bandits.

The Senate, thereafter, observed a minute silence to mourn the victims of Monday’s attack by bandits.
