UK Parliament Attack: Fear grips Nigerian Senators, raise alarm over porous security in NASS
The Senate yesterday raised the alarm over the porous security in National Assembly, following terror attack on the United Kingdom Parliament.
Senators said urgent steps should be taken to prevent undesirable elements from infiltrating the National Assembly complex.
The upper chamber condemned Wednesday’s terrorist attack on the United Kingdom Parliament.
It called for immediate security beef up within and around the National Assembly to secure lives and property.
Senator Samuel Anyanwu drew the attention of his colleagues to the way and manner people troop to the National Assembly, especially at unholy hours of the day.
The Imo East lawmaker, who relied on Order 43 of the Senate Standing Rules, urged security agencies in the National Assembly to step up their game.
“One day, we may just be here and a bomb will go off. We need to call the people in charge of security here to take this issue very seriously. If what happened in the UK is allowed to happen here, there will be trouble. I have said my own.”
Senate Leader Ahmad Lawan condemned the terrorist attack in the UK.
The Senate resolved to write the UK Parliament to commiserate the members over the terror attack.
