Nigerian Senate President, Ahmad Lawan has called on the country security agencies to do more in tackling insecurity in the country.

He said Nigerians expect better outcomes from security agencies as they get more resources.

Lawan made this call on Wednesday in Kaduna when he led a delegation on a condolence visit to the family of Bala Na’ Allah, senator representing Kebbi south, whose son, Abdulkarim, was murdered on Sunday at his residence in Malali GRA in Kaduna metropolis.

He said: “We cannot get tired of insisting we get results from our security agencies,”

“We will not also get tired of providing resources and platforms for our security agencies to do better.”

The Senate President noted the national assembly, before proceeding on recess in July, approved over N800 billion for the provision of arms to the security agencies.

“With the recent acquisition of the TA-29 Super Tucano by our Air Force and other platforms, we believe that the government is doing everything possible to enhance the capacity and capabilities of our armed forces to fight the numerous security challenges that we face especially banditry here in the north-west,” he said.

“Our security agents must sit up; we appreciate what they are doing but we expect better outcomes now that more resources have been given to them.

“I appeal to security agencies to come up with better strategies in dealing with and confronting banditry that has now become almost a norm in this state.”

He described the deceased as “a man of peace, conviction, focused, patriotic and a productive Nigerian”.

“This is one death too many but when Allah wishes, nobody can stop His will and none of us could have done anything to stop this,”

“Our security agents must follow the trail and do everything possible to get the killers of our son.”
