THE MINORITY CAUCUS OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES HAS CONDEMNED “IN STRONG TERMS” THE RECENT KILLING OF A CATHOLIC PRIEST, PAUL OFFU, IN AWGU, ENUGU STATE, BY GUNMEN.

THE CAUCUS WHILE NOTING THAT THE PRIMARY PURPOSE OF GOVERNMENT IS THE SECURITY OF THE LIVES AND PROPERTY OF CITIZENS, CHARGED THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WITH CURTAILING THE HIGH SPATE OF INSECURITY IN THE COUNTRY.

ACCORDING TO THE OPPOSITION LAWMAKERS, THE RISING CASES OF KILLINGS, BANDITRY, KIDNAPPINGS, AMONG OTHERS, WILL RECEIVE “FULL LEGISLATIVE ATTENTION” WHEN THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY RESUMES FROM THE ONGOING TWO-MONTH ANNUAL RECESS IN SEPTEMBER.

IN A STATEMENT SIGNED BY THE MINORITY LEADER, NDUDI ELUMELU, AND ISSUED TO JOURNALISTS IN ABUJA ON MONDAY, THE CAUCUS SYMPATHISED WITH THE GOVERNMENT AND PEOPLE OF ENUGU STATE AS WELL AS THE CATHOLIC CHURCH OVER THE “MINDLESS KILLING” OF OFFU.
