The worsening insecurity in the country has gotten the attention of the National Assembly. To this effect, the Nigerian Senate has summoned the country’s service chiefs, the Minister of Defence, the Inspector-general of Police, and the Director of the Department of State Service over the worsening security situation in the country.
The upper chamber’s decision comes amidst last weekend’s abduction of over 300 boys of a government secondary school in northwestern Katsina state.
The motion which sought the invitation of the country’s top security officials was moved by Senator Bello Mandiya from Katsina State.
The Senate also urged President Muhammadu Buhari to without further delay implement a report of the Senate Committee on Security Challenges.
Lawmakers in their various contributions passed a vote of no confidence on the various heads of security agencies in the country over their inability to prevent the abduction of innocent children.
They were more saddened by the fact that the Nigerian leader had consistently ignored all resolutions passed by the Senate on the issue of insecurity in the country.
