The House of Representatives has asked security agencies in the country to carry out a comprehensive investigation into the circumstances leading to the murder of soldiers by yet-to-be-identified gunmen.

Adopting a motion of urgent public importance sponsored by Abubakar Yalleman, the House asked its committees on Defence to interface with the Armed Forces to ensure a comprehensive investigation to fish out those responsible for the act.

Yalleman lamented the needless and gruesome murder of the military personnel who were on peace missions, adding that the act has become a recurring decimal across the country.

Yalleman spoke as the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPoB, yesterday, faulted President Bola Tinubu’s alleged order for the military to retaliate against the killing of soldiers in Abia State.

According to him, this act of attacking and killing military personnel is often carried out through surprise attacks on military formations including checkpoints and even those on routine patrols.

He said the military personnel were on a peace mission in their service to their fatherland and ensuring the security of lives and property in that area.

He added that the form of attack and killing of military personnel by gunmen in the South East and other parts of Nigeria has the potential to dampen the morale of our armed forces, endangering the lives and property of Nigerians and affecting the insecurity war which has so far recorded some successes.
