The Nigerian senate appears set to tackle electoral violence by coming up with a Bill to address election and post-election violence in the country.

This follows senator GEORGE SEKIBO’s citing of Orders 42 and 52 and moving a motion on public electoral violence during plenary.

The lawmakers condemned the spate of killings in the country and observed a minute silence in honour of those that lost their lives in the just concluded elections in Bayelsa and Kogi State.

The upper chamber said the proposed Bill if signed into law will prescribe severe punishments for perpetrators of violence during any election in the country.

Senate President AHMAD LAWAN also during the plenary called on security agencies to bring to justice the killers of the PDP woman leader in Kogi, ACHEJUH ABUH.
