Remi Tinubu, senator representing Lagos Central, on Tuesday, attacked Smart Adeyemi, her All Progressives Congress (APC) colleague from Kogi West, over his complaint about the state of insecurity in the country.
Nigeria has been witnessing increase in killings and attacks by Boko Haram and bandits.
Niger State governor, Sani Bello, on Monday, revealed that Boko Haram has hoisted its flag in Shiroro Local Government Area of the state.
While contributing to a motion on the situation, Adeyemi said the nation is facing the worst instability since the civil war.
“This is the worst instability we are facing. In fact this is worse than the civil war”, he said.
However, Tinubu interrupted him, asking: “Are you in PDP (Peoples Democratic Party)? Are you a wolf in sheep’s clothing?”
But Adeyemi ignored her and continued with his comments:
“We cannot pretend that we are capable of handling the situation in our hands. America, as powerful as they are, when the pandemic came, it came to a point China came to their rescue.
“We shouldn’t pretend that we need foreign support now. Billions of naira has been voted for security services and nothing is coming out of it.
“I’m a party man and I’m supporting APC but it has gotten to a point that as supporters we cannot keep quiet,” he stated.
Nigeria on Monday, recorded more than 10 security incidents, as killings and attacks continued across the country.
