Insecurity: Senators asks Buhari to sack service chiefs

Senate

Nigerian Senators on Wednesday asked President Muhamadu Buhari to sack the service chiefs due to their failure to ensure adequate security in the country.

The lawmakers have taken a whole legislative day to debate the security situation in the country and to chart a way forward.

The Senators during the varied contributions on the floor of the Senate, said the service chiefs have overstayed and that they are bereft of intelligence ideas to tackle insecurity.

Apart from calling for the sack of the service chiefs, the Senators have further suggested that the federal government urgently implement the establishment of state police.

The lawmakers said despite the fact the federal government has expanded so much on fighting insecurity, lives and property are being lost because the service chiefs lack the will to contain the attacks.

At the moment, the Senators are still deliberating on the matter.
