Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu has called on the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu to proffer a permanent solution to the continuous killings and kidnappings of foreign aid workers in Nigeria.
Ekweremadu stated this on Thursday in Abuja while condemning the killing of Briton, Faye Mooney, an aid worker, in Kajuru Castle in Kaduna State last week.
He said that if nothing is done, Nigeria will continue to be profiled as a terrorist state abroad.
“This nation’s security has been breached. Tourists who have plans of coming to Nigeria will now think twice before coming. And this is affecting our economy.
“It is important to take this issue seriously in order to protect our national image. Even if it means declaring a state of emergency in affected states, so be it,” Mr Ekweremadu said.
