The Senate on Thursday summoned the heads of the military and other security agencies over the country’s security challenges.

This followed the adoption of a motion titled: “Kidnapping of university students in Federal University Dutsinma, Katsina State on Wednesday, October 4, 2023, and rising cases of kidnapping for ransom in the North-West geopolitical zone,” sponsored by Senator Abdulaziz Yar’Adua at the plenary in Abuja.

In his presentation, Yar’Adua expressed concern at Wednesday’s kidnap of five female students of the Federal University Dutsinma in Katsina State by gunmen.
