It was in response to a tweet by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, in which he made a similar demand on Friday night.

Saraki had tweeted, “I join all Nigerians in condemning the killing of innocent and defenceless citizens in Birane Village, Zurmi Local Government Area of Zamfara State.

“Such senseless acts have no place in our society. Our security agencies must do all that it takes to find and prosecute the perpetrators.
