Insecurity: Service Chiefs to appear before Senate on Thursday

The Service Chiefs and heads of security agencies would on Thursday appear before the upper chamber to brief it on efforts to address the spate of insecurity in the country says the President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan.

Lawan announced this at the commencement of plenary proceedings.

He said that the appearance by the service chiefs is in response to a resolution by the Senate last week Tuesday, wherein it was resolved that the service chiefs and other heads of security agencies be invited against the backdrop of heightening insecurity across states of the federation.

Lawan added that due to an ongoing security meeting at the Presidential Villa, the service chiefs were unable to respond promptly to the invitation by appearing on today (Tuesday).

However, he said the service chiefs would appear before the chamber on Thursday, May 6, 2021.
