Senate summons Police IG over incessant spate of kidnappings

Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase
The Senate has summoned the Inspector-General of Police Mr Solomon Arase, over the incessant spate of kidnappings in different parts of the country.

The Police Boss is to brief the Senate on the steps the Police is taking to address the problem.

The upper legislative chamber also resolved to review the extant laws on kidnapping, with the intention of imposing stiffer penalties on culprits.

These actions by the Senate followed a motion raised by a Federal Lawmaker, Senator Andy Uba, who drew the attention of the Senate to the prevalent cases of kidnappings in Nigeria.

He said that the crime has assumed dangerous dimensions and spreading to virtually all parts of the country.
