Borno farmers’ murder: Sack service chiefs now, Senate tells Buhari

Senate has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to “immediately” sack service chiefs following their inability and failure to secure Nigerians.

The upper chamber’s latest request, which is the third this year, followed a motion by Senator Kashim Shettima on the recent killing of 43 rice farmers in Borno State by the Boko Haram insurgents.

Senate, therefore, asked Buhari to replace the security chiefs with new ones “immediately”.

It also asked President Buhari to restructure and remodel the nation’s security architecture.

Senate further demanded a probe into the allegations of corruption and financial leakage levelled against some top hierarchy of the military.

It asked Buhari to aggressively negotiate with the nation’s neighbouring countries for multinational cooperation in order to strengthen the war against insurgency.

The lawmakers directed the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, NEMA and NEDC to provide succour and psychological support for the families of the victims.

Senate urged the federal and state governments to address issues fuelling insecurity.

It similarly called for massive recruitment into the military and the police force.
