The House of Representatives has called for the declaration of a national emergency on ritual killings across the country.

The  Minority Leader of the House, Toby Okechukwu, moved the motion during Wednesday ’s plenary session at the lower chamber of the National Assembly in Abuja.

The motion is coming amid the incessant killing of innocent Nigerians for ritual purposes, with one of the latest being the murder of Sofiat Okeowo by four teenagers in Ogun State.

Worried about the trend, the lawmakers called on the National Orientation Agency (NOA), as well as parents, heads of schools, religious leaders, and the media to undertake a campaign to change the negative narrative circulating.
