Kuje Attack: Deputy Speaker Accuses Security Agents of Ignoring 44 SSS Reports

The Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ahmed Idris-Wase, has accused some security agents of ignoring about 44 State Security Service, SSS, security reports before the terrorist attack on Kuje Correctional Centre.

Mr Wase stated this during Tuesday’s plenary while contributing to a motion on the ‘Need to halt the proposed nationwide ban on Commercial Motorcycles’ sponsored by Abubakar Yalleman (APC-Jigawa).

Recall that the National Security Council had in their last meeting proposed a ban on mining activities and motorcycle operations in a bit to curb the raging insecurity in the country.

Backing the move by the Federal Government to ban commercial motorcycle operations across the country, Mr Wase said the country could not afford to keep ignoring security intelligence.

“There is no community that one attack or the other will happen and we will not have an intel, and this is part of the intel that, they have given as what is going to happen, what is happening and what is not going to happen.”

The lawmaker, however, appealed to his colleagues to support the Federal Government in implementing the policy in vulnerable areas where the ban could help in tackling banditry and terrorism.
