The resolutions followed as the senate moved a motion on a matter of urgent public importance on the incident by Senator representing Niger East, Mohammed Sani Musa.
However, The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, in his statement, said the frequent incidents of kidnapping of students would reverse the gains made in school enrollment over the years in the North.
