Just In: Senate Calls For Sack Of Service Chiefs


has called for the dismissal of service chiefs as the country continues to grapple with security challenges.

The resolution of the upper legislative chamber followed a motion sponsored by Ali Ndume, senator representing Borno south and chairman of the committee on army.

Senator Ndume moved the motion over the increased rate of insecurity in the country.

According to the Senator, it is worrying that soldiers were ambushed recently in Katsina with several of them killed as well as allegations of unprecedented voluntary retirement of over 200 soldiers.

He said if the trend continues, it will have dire consequences on the country.

Gabriel Olonisakin, chief of defence staff; Tukur Buratai, chief of army staff; Sadique Abubakar, chief of air staff; and Ibok-Ete Ekwe Ibas, chief of naval staff; are all due for retirement.

Despite calls for their sack, President Muhammadu Buhari has kept them in office.
