Senator Ike Ekweremadu has asked the Federal Government to seek foreign help to fight insecurity in the country.

The Senator stated this on Tuesday during plenary in response to a motion by Senator Sani Musa on the activities of bandits and Boko Haram terrorists in Shiroro and Rafi Local Government Areas of Niger State.

Senator Ekweremadu said any government that fails to protect its citizens has lost its legitimacy, therefore the Federal Government should not be ashamed to seek foreign support.

He called for the shut down of Niger State and the Senate to deal with the problem just as the country was shut down during COVID-19.

Senator Musa who moved the motion said the activities of bandits and terrorists in Shirroro Niger State have reached a dangerous dimension.

He lamented that several atrocities have been unleashed on communities in Niger State leading to the displacement of citizens, the collapse of health, education, and agricultural sectors.

According to him, 42 communities along Shirroro and Munya LGA are now under the control of Boko Haram who have mounted flags in some communities.

The senator warned that Abuja the Federal Capital city is no longer safe.

He insisted on a total review of the security architecture as proposed by the Senate Adhoc Committee on security.
