Senate Urges Buhari To Sack "Overstayed" Service Chiefs Over Borno Killings
The Senate has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to dismiss ”overstayed” service chiefs following the killing of rice farmers in Borno State.
The decision was reached following a motion sponsored by Kashim Shettima, a senator representing Borno central.
Shettima also drew the attention of senators to the killing of 45 farmers at Kwashabe village, about 20 kilometers north of Maiduguri, Borno’s capital. He warned that any government that cannot protect the lives of its citizens losses any iota of legitimacy.
