The House of Representatives has asked the Nigeria Police Force to launch a “thorough investigation” of the horrible murder of a former member of the House and Commissioner for Science and Technology in Katsina State, Dr. Rabe Nasir, noting that “everyone involved in the murder be brought to justice.”
The call was based on the motion titled ‘Need to Investigate the Assassination of Dr. Rabe Nasir in Katsina State’ moved by a member, Isansi Iro, during plenary on Wednesday,
Iro noted that Nasir was assassinated in his residence in the Katsina metropolis on December 2, 2021, at night by unidentified gunmen.
He said, “The House is concerned about the increasing rate of insecurity, especially in the North. However, assassination is a new phenomenon in Katsina and other North-West states of the country.
“The House is worried that the murder of Dr. Nasir has further triggered anxiety and apprehension amongst the people of Katsina metropolis and the state at large, as they have been living in constant fear for their lives.
“The House is cognisant of the overwhelming need for security agencies to thoroughly investigate the assassination of Dr. Nasir, with a view to bringing the culprits to book and allay peoples fear as regards their safety in the state.”
