Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe has called for the flushing out of all criminal elements from Nigeria, as the country grapples with unprecedented insecurity.
Abaribe made the call during plenary on Wednesday, warning the government to stop papering over matter when it comes to the issue of security.
The lawmaker denied claims that certain citizens were being sent away from different regions of the country, clarifying that only miscreants were been chased out of the forests from where they have been unleashing mayhem on innocent Nigerians.
“No Nigerian is being sent away from anywhere, criminals are being sent away from the forest where they are,” he said.
Abaribe told his colleagues that the desideratum for solving Nigeria’s security need at this time, is to ensure that all criminal elements coming into the country from wherever they are, be flushed out.
