Security Agents To Speak On Insecurity In The Senate Today
The security and service chiefs in the country, will today, 23rd of May, be questioned by the Senate in respect to the state of Nigeria’s security.
Bukola Saraki, President of the Senate, just after the session on Tuesday was adjourned, pleaded with senators to get ready on Wednesday for briefing, as the meeting will be aired on the Nigerian Television Authority.
Saraki said, “Let me remind you that tomorrow, we are expecting all the service chiefs and heads of security agencies following our resolution of last week…for 11 am. Please ensure attendance. All service chiefs and heads of all the security agencies. That includes the DSS, IG and others.”
The upper chamber of the National Assembly had last Wednesday resolved that the Nigerian Police, Department of State Services and the Nigerian military brief it this week on the security situation in the country.
The resolution was made based on a point of order raised by Senator Shehu Sani at the day’s plenary to report the killings in Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna State to the Senate.
Saraki, in his ruling, had decried the continued killings of Nigerians across the country, asking the security agencies to brief the lawmakers on their efforts to check the killers.
