Insecurity: Senate orders Buhari to sack service chiefs


The Senate on Tuesday asked President Muhammadu Buhari to sack the service chiefs as they have overstayed their terms in office.

This resolution followed a motion sponsored by Senator Kashim Shettima, senator representing Borno central.

The Ravens NG gathered that the request by the lawmakers is coming six months after they asked the service chiefs to resign.

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 overdue for retirement.

Shettima had drawn the attention of senators to the killing of 45 farmers at Kwashabe village, about 20 kilometres north of Maiduguri, Borno’s capital.
