Boko Haram: Senate Orders Army To Set Up Duty Posts In Auno

The Nigerian Senate has ordered the Nigerian military to immediately set up a post in Auno, the village where 30 travelers were killed by Boko Haram.

Auno is 24km from Maiduguri, Borno’s state capital.

The sanate gave the order following a motion by Kashim Shettima, the former governor and senator, representing the central Borno district.

In its plenary Thursday, the senate condemned the massacre, while observing a minute of silence in honor of the victims.

In the motion, Shettima, seeking for measures to prevent a recurrence, asked the authorities of the Nigerian Army and Defense Headquarters to immediately set up a post in the town to protect the town and travelers.

It similarly called on the Nigeria’s Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management to immediately commence the supply of relief materials to affected residents as well as the rehabilitation of the village.

Shettima also asked the Defense headquarters to set up a committee to investigate the attack in order to forestall recurrence.
