For failing to stem the killings attributed to herdsmen across the country, Nigerian senators have called for the sack of Nigeria’s military chiefs and appointment of new security chiefs who can introduce new strategies to stem the ongoing slaughter of the citizens.

Speaking during a debate on the reported killings of scores of villagers in Nasarawa South Senatorial District at the weekend, the Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, asked President Muhammadu Buhari to enlist the help of foreign nations in tackling the insecurity in the country.

Ekweremadu who presided over the plenary wondered, why the situation has been allowed to continue when other countries would have addressed it long before now.

In his contribution, Senator Adeola Solomon Olamilekan asked for the sack of the current heads of the security agencies pointing out that what the president needs at this time are fresh ideas on how to tackle numerous security challenges confronting the nation since, according to him, the current security chiefs have exhausted their ideas.
