The National Assembly has pledged to collaborate with the federal government in finding lasting solutions to the security challenges.
This was the pledge made by a delegation of the National Assembly on Sunday when they paid a condolence visit to the leader of Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti who lost his daughter, Mrs Funke Olakunrin, who was killed along Benin-IOre road by unknown gunmen who attempted to kidnap her.
It could be recalled that a lawmaker representing Akure South/Akure North federal constituency, Adedayo Omolafe, urged the Federal government to make the killing of Fasoranti’s daughter as a test case to end kidnapping and highway banditry.
Speaking with newsmen shortly after condoling the 94-year-old Afenifere leader on behalf of the House of Representatives, the leader of the delegation, Segun Odebunmi said various security measures by the Federal government like the deployment of more soldiers on the highways would receive the blessing of the National Assembly.
The lawmaker who assured that the National Assembly would work with security operatives to fish out Mrs Olakunrin’s killers enjoined the people to volunteer information regarding security around them.
