The Senate has directed its Committee on Interior to carry out a full-scale investigation on the rising cases of jail breaks across the country.
The Committee was also directed to summon the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola and the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami over the menace of incessant jail breaks across the country.
The panel is also to summon the Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Correctional Service, Haliru Nababa.
The Upper Chamber also commended the “judiciary for the recent judgement of the Federal High Court declaring all bandits and all other insurgents as terrorists which has now empowered the military to take appropriate actions against them.”
The house observed a minute silence in honor of victims who lost their lives at Ta’egbe and Durbi communities and those who were killed at the Jos Correctional Centre.
