This followed a motion of urgent public importance moved by the Honourable member representing Langtang North/Langtang South Federal constituency, Beni Lar on the floor of the House urged the House to urgently intervene in the matter. 

 

Representative Lar regretted that the two communities have been on each other's neck for long over land dispute which has rendered many homeless, claimed many lives and properties worth millions of naira were destoryed.
