Some members of Lagos State House of Assembly on Thursday said the attack on the Warri refinery had sent wrong signals to foreign investors coming to invest in Nigeria.
The lawmakers were reacting to the statements credited to the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) as having claimed responsibility for the incident.
Mr Bisi Yusuf, the chairman, House Committee on Transportation, Commerce and Industry, urged the Federal Government to take proactive measures in tackling security challenges in the country.
The chairman, House Committee on Environment, Mr Abiodun Tobun, (APC-Epe I), said that such action was condemnable and might scare foreign investors away from the country.
Tobun said, "It is not a good development; it only sends a bad signal about the country and the insecurity.
"It portray a bad signal to the country and then with that it will make the foreign investors not to come into the country to invest; and, after all, the Niger Delta issues have been fully resolved".
