Senate Demands Sack of Service Chiefs Following Soldiers’ Killings

The Senate on Tuesday asked the service chiefs to step aside following the killings of soldiers who are fighting insurgency and banditry in some parts of northern Nigeria.
The motion was brought to the floor of the Senate through a point of order, moved by the Chairman of its Committee on Army, Senator Ali Ndume.
Those who contributed to the motion lamented the implication of the disturbing development stressing that it was capable of frustrating the war against insurgency and banditry.
They noted that many members of the armed forces who are scared of losing their lives have started resigning from the military.
The Vice-Chairman of the Senate Committee on Customs, Senator Ayo Fadahunsi, proposed an additional prayer that demanded the stepping aside of the service chiefs and his prayer was seconded by Senator Betty Apiafi.
However, speaking to newsmen before the end of plenary, mover of the motion and chairman of the Senate committee on Army, Senator Ali Ndume said the resolution for the removal of the service Chiefs was not part of his initial motion.
