Leader of the Se­nate, Ali Ndume yesterday told his col­leagues to be vig­i­lant, say­ing the Na­tional Assem­bly is be­ing in­fil­trated daily.

Con­tribut­ing to a mo­tion spon­sored by Sen­a­tor Philip Tan­imu Aduda (PDP, FCT) on the bomb ex­plo­sions that rocked Abuja on Fri­day, he said de­spite tight se­cu­rity put in place, the Na­tional Assem­bly is be­ing in­fil­trated daily.

“This is a wake-up call to se­cu­rity agen­cies and to all of us. We have to be alert and vig­i­lant. Even here at the Na­tional Assem­bly we have to be more vig­i­lant be­cause even with the se­cu­rity, there is se­ri­ous in­fil­tra­tion in the NASS,” he said.

In pass­ing res­o­lu­tion on the mo­tion, the Se­nate con­demned the Abuja bomb blasts and called on the Fed­eral gov­ern­ment to sup­port the vic­tims and the fam­i­lies of those that lost their lives.

Speak­ing on the mo­tion, the Se­nate Pres­i­dent, Bukola Saraki said they would give the re­quired sup­port to se­cu­rity agen­cies in the fight against in­sur­gency.

“We must do our part at the Se­nate to con­tinue to give the max­i­mum sup­port to se­cu­rity agen­cies for them to suc­ceed in the fight against in­sur­gency, “he said.
