Zamfara loses more people to bandit attacks in Nigeria, says Senator Barau

The Senate on Tuesday urged the Federal Government to direct the Nigerian Air Force to use air surveillance to identify the location of suspected armed bandits involved in the Feb. 14 killings in Zamfara and flush them out.

The suspects are believed to be hiding within the sparse of a forest in the state.

The upper legislative chamber also urged the Federal Government to explore diplomatic avenues to prevail on Niger and Chad Republics to prevent criminals from using their territories to launch attack on Nigeria.

It equally urged the State Governments to upgrade, recruit and generously fund state and local vigilante teams with the aim of improving security in the affected areas.
