The Senate in similar development in "Ripples Nigeria of 1st December 2020" has demanded that the service chiefs be replaced with new vibrant brains to handle the security challenges and restructure the entire security system.


The service chiefs who were installed by the Buhari led administration was to coin out modalities to fight insurgency and terrorism.

To this day the stride of the service chiefs is not being felt as insurgency, banditry, kidnappings continue to heavily plunge the northern part of the country.
