The Senate on Thursday has joined in condemning the massacre of over 30 travellers in Auno town near Maiduguri on Sunday.
The travellers who could not enter Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, due to the curfew imposed on the city by the Army, opted to take refuge in Auno but the Boko Haram terrorists invaded the town and burnt over 30 people who were sleeping in their vehicles.
A former governor of the state, who is now representing Borno Central Senatorial District, in the National Assembly, Senator Kashim Shettima, raised a motion Condemning of the incident on Thursday.
The Senate, therefore, expressed displeasure over the attack and told the authorities of the Nigerian Army to immediately create a camp in the town to protect travellers that may be caught up in the curfew.
The Senate also had a minute of silence in honour of those who lost their lives during the attack.
It further called on the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management to immediately start the supply of relief materials to affected residents as well as the rehabilitation of the village.
