The House of Representatives has resolved to constitute an Ad Hoc Committee to investigate the remote causes of the recent attack by alleged herdsmen on Oke-Ako Community in Ekiti State. The House during plenary on Wednesday directed the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase to deploy Police personnel to the affected areas to avert likely reprisal attacks.
The House further urged the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to send relief materials to the affected community. These resolutions by the House followed a motion of urgent public importance entitled; “the fatal invasion of Oke Ako Ekiti community by suspected herdsmen” sponsored by Rep.
Emmanuel Agboola (Ekiti-PDP). Moving the motion, the Lawmaker said that the attacks if not curbed, would lead to reprisal attacks and imminent guerrilla warfare.
