A lawmaker at the House of Representatives has called for national mourning in order to show remorse for the several lives lost to the herdsmen killings in Nigeria.

Honourable Kingsley Chinda Ogundu representing Obio/Akpor Federal Constituency, Rivers State made the passionate plea for national mourning on Wednesday, February 7 while supporting the motion for the sack of the Police Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood.

The lawmakers had earlier called for the sack and replacement of the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris accusing him of failing in his duty.

The PDP lawmaker said Nigerian government and Nigerians generally need to be mourning at the moment.

“Mr Speaker, my dear colleagues, very sincerely our country ought to still be in a mourning mood. In fact, all of us in government and governance ought to be mourning the loss of Nigerians, from January, up till date.
