The consistent threat to the unstable peace and never ending loss of properties and brutal killings across the country, particularly in the Middle Belt by suspected herdsmen propelled the House of Representatives to arrive at some severe resolutions on Wednesday. 
The lawmakers passed a motion summoning President Muhammadu Buhari to appear before it in plenary and address the House on efforts being taken to arrest the worrisome killing sprees. The lawmakers also decided to suspend plenary for three legislative days as a mark of solidarity with Nigerians over the continuing bloodshed in the country.

Along with the above, the lawmakers  passed a vote of no confidence on all the service chiefs and security advisers of the president, calling for their immediate replacement so that better ideas targeted at tackling the lingering state of insecurity will be brought to the table. 
The lower legislative chamber equally directed that all killers or armed herdsmen must be proscribed and declared terrorists while all cattle rearers must be duly registered.
It came just as some lawmakers in the House, for the second day in a row, reiterated their clamour for impeachment proceeding against the president, but this time over his failure to curtail the rising spate of killings in the country.

All of these came to light after Honorable Mark Gbillah (APC, Benue) brought forward a motion on the attack by alleged army personnel on innocent residents of Naka Gwer-West Local Government Area of Benue State and the inability of the army and other security agencies to manage the incessant murder of indigenes of the state by the armed herdsmen.
Honorable Gbillah said, “Benue is under siege, there’s a war going on in Benue. We don’t understand why the government should abdicate its responsibility.” 

Also, Hon. Tarkighin Dickson (APC, Benue) although Benue State was referred to as the food basket of the nation, it had become the blood basket of the nation. Honorable Dickson added that, “When the army lost 27 soldiers, they did nothing but they torched a whole village when a soldier was killed.”
A minute silence was observed in honour of the army officer, victims of the alleged army attack and victims of the recent attacks by armed herdsmen.

The House strongly admonished Buhari to, within 24 hours, deploy the requisite number of personnel and equipment to the identified locations of the bandits in the state to flush them out and establish permanent military bases in the immediate affected locations within seven days.

Honorable Mohammed Sheriff (APC, Borno) also charged the Speaker to inform the president that “enough is enough”.
He noted that, “These people (killer herdsmen) are terrorists and that’s how Boko Haram.” 

Honorable Magaji Aliyu (APC, Jigawa) agreeing with his colleagues said, “I’m APC, but the truth be told, this has gone beyond sentiments. The police chief should go. If not for this Nigeria, we won’t be here. We must be seen to be proactive. He firmly added that, “This is enough. Life is essential and the Constitution says life and property should be protected.”

The young Malian who entered France some months back proclaimed: “I saw all these people shouting , and cars sounding their horns . I climbed up like that and thank God , I saved the child.
