According to statement, the speaker has made contact with relevant agencies of government charged with the responsibilities of providing security to beef up their activities in the area to root out the criminals in the district.
He said the security situation in the country is becoming worrisome hence there is need for all and sundry to make concerted efforts at confronting the menace for the growth of Nigeria.
The Speaker, who represents Kabba-Bunu state constituency in the Assembly, called on the Commissioner of Police and other heads of security agencies in the state to swing into action to fish out the perpetrators.
He urged the people of the community to remain calm as efforts are ongoing to bring the situation under control.
