needed for medical attention.
He however urged the security agencies to leave no
stone unturned in ensuring that the peace that has
returned to the Federal Capital Tertiary (FCT) and its

“To maintain peace, we need to step up the intelligence
gathering machinery and get ordinary people to give

individuals, groups or even unexplainable location of

outlaws within the shortest possible time”, he stated.
Saraki added that the Senate would continue to
support the troops with appropriate legislations and
necessary budgetary allocations to enable them
