Senate raise alarm over attacks on Ebonyi communities allegedly by Igala militias

Senator representing Ebonyi North Senatorial district, Sam Egwu, has stated that communities along Kogi and Ebonyi border have been under attack by militias from Igala extraction.

He raised this issue while contributing to a debate on killings and insecurity in Nigeria.

He noted that the militias have incessantly attacked communities and dislodged them.

“Mr. President, distinguished colleagues, it’s not only in Kaduna that innocent lives are lost.”

“Two days ago, Igala militias attacked some communities in Ebonyi North which border Kogi and as I speak, the people have all ran away to the state capital as IDPs.”

Egwu further explained that the militias have been attacking the communities for sometime without security agents challenging them.

The ongoing crisis in Kaduna sparked intense debate at the Senate on Wednesday following a motion sponsored by Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi representing Kaduna North Senatorial district.
