Probe extra Judiciary killings in Rivers…. House of Representatives

With the alleged killings of unarmed civilians in Rivers state by men of the Federal Special Anti-robbery Squad, FSARS, the House of Representatives has mandated the Committee set up, for Army, Police Affairs, Human Rights, and Justice to investigate alleged killings. 

Following the alleged killings in Rivers, the lawmakers are concerned that if it is not checked, it could lead to a break down of law and order.

Ferry Gberegbe, a lecturer with the Ken Saro Wiwa Polytechnic, Rivers state was shot in his lower abdomen at the Khana Local Government Area collection centre by men of the Federal SARS during the governorship election in the state.

The lawmakers are worried that the killing among others in Rivers state is one too many in cases of extra-judicial killings across the country.

On the resurgence of attacks in communities in Zamfara, Kaduna, Benue, and other states, the house requested that President Buhari address the nation on the inability of the armed forces to stop the carnage.

Meanwhile, the house has called for urgent intervention in the rehabilitation of some communities in Plateau state destroyed by a thunderstorm.
