Progress Report

Glad to report progress on the motion I presented on the floor of the Senate concerning the tragic incident of 26th September and the death of Ms Greatness Olorunfemi.

In line with the resolutions, the Inspector General of the Nigerian Police Force has mandated all police commanding units to enforce the provisions of the Compulsory Treatment and Care for Victims of Gunshots Act 2017 without delay.

The Federal Ministry of Health has also stated that it will actively collaborate with the Nigerian Police Force to disseminate the National Act to all police divisions across the nation and raise public awareness.

The 10th Senate is committed to ensuring justice is served for the Olorunfemi family and is determined to monitor compliance and enforcement of directives in healthcare facilities nationwide, thus preventing other
families from enduring similar tragedies.
