Angered by seeing the seemingly intractable killings across the country, senators yesterday charged President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately dismiss the heads of security as well as service chiefs. According to THE GUARDIAN, THE NATION, NIGERIAN TRIBUNE, NEW TELEGRAM, DAILY INDEPENDENT and DAILY SUN, the lawmakers called on the president to accept an offer of security assistance made to him by the British Prime Minister, Theresa May on Monday. Debating a motion under matters of urgent public importance, sponsored by Senator Suleiman Adokwe(PDP, Nasarawa State) on the renewed killings by herdsmen and criminal militia groups, the lawmakers noted that government’s inability to tackle unending killings in the country was endangering the nation’s democracy.

Ekweremadu said this while he presided over the plenary on Tuesday, spoke while ruling on a motion moved by Senator Suleiman Adokwe.
