This was disclosed by the majority leader, who represents the Owan federal seat in Edo State, on Thursday during an interactive session with representatives from donor agencies and civil society organizations.

In an attempt to defend the National Assembly members, Ihonvbere said that some had been unable to visit their communities due to insecurity.

He claimed that highway blind spots are now being used by kidnappers to capture commuters.

“Some MPs can go from Abuja to their constituencies with ease by plane. Every weekend is open to them. However, some members have a two- to five-mile commute. It has been months since I visited my constituency. I’m unable to go. It’s unsafe and devoid of roadways. Actually, when you pause, that’s when kidnappers come and take you,” he remarked.
