SENATE TO VISIT BORNO OVER THE KILLING 60 RESIDENTS.

The President of the Senate, Dr Ahmad Lawan, says the Senate will soon pay a visit to the Badu village in Borno where the Boko Haram insurgents killed more than 60 residents.

Lawan disclosed this on Tuesday at the plenary following a motion by Sen. Abubakar Kyari (PDP Borno), over the recent attacks.

The incident occurred on July 27, at Badu village in Nganzai Local Government Area of the state, when the victims were coming from a funeral.

Kyari, in his motion, urged the Senate to come to the rescue of the surviving victims and condemn the attack in its entirety.
