On Tuesday, the Senate condemned in very strong terms the attack on Government Science School, Kankara, Katsina State, which led to the abduction and disappearance of over 300 students.
The Islamic terrorist group, Boko Haram, has since claimed responsibility for the attack.
During Tuesday’s plenary, the Senate also rejected a prayer seeking to invite Major-Gen. Bashir Magashi (rtd) the Minister of Defence; Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar; and the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu; Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Yusuf Buratai; the Director-General and Department of State Security Service, Yusuf Magaji Bichi; to brief the Senate on measures being taken to rescue the missing students.
The red chamber, however, maintained its call for the Nigeria leader, President Muhammadu Buhari, to consider and implement the recommendations of its Adhoc Committee on Nigeria Security Challenges dated March, 17th 2020, and Senate Resolutions from that place, as a holistic response to the mounting security challenges across Nigeria.
The Adhoc committee had recommended the dismissal of the current service chiefs.
The upper legislative chamber further rejected an additional motion by Yahaya Abdullahi (APC – Kebbi North); the Senate Leader, and seconded by Senator Abdullahi Adamu (APC – Nasarawa West) for the constitutions of an Adhoc Committee comprising of APC and PDP lawmakers, to brainstorm on ways to curb the rising security challenges facing the country.
