Insecurity: PDP lawmakers move to impeach Buhari

Following rising insecurity in the country, The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, caucus in the House of Representatives has called for the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Kingsley Chinda, leader of the caucus, made the call on Thursday at a press conference in Abuja.

He made the call in the company of members of the PDP House caucus. During the conference, Chinda said, “The president should be impeached over the growing insecurity in the country.”

Last Friday, gunmen abducted about 600 students from the Government Science Secondary School in Kankara Local Government Area of Katsina State.

Following the abduction, Boko Haram claimed responsibility, the terrorist group explained that its action was to discourage western education and encourage Islam.

On Thursday, the insurgent released a video claiming it has the abducted students in its custody.

The clip which is six-minute-and-30-second long, shows scores of young boys behind him, all covered in dust within a forest area.

The relatively older schoolboy who spoke to the camera urged the Nigerian Government to settle amicably with their abductors and advised against the use of military force in rescuing them.

The student also disclosed that some other students were killed.
