Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu is said to be having a closed-door meeting with senators over the decreasing level of security throughout Nigeria.
IGP Adamu's appearance at the Senate is in response to the summon issued by the leadership of the house, Premium Times reports.
He is expected to brief federal lawmakers on the possible solutions and strategy for tackling insecurity that has become a cause for serious concern.
Moreover, IGP Adamu is to inform senators on practical modalities for community policing which appears to be one of the surest ways out of the menace.
Recall that Legit.ng had reported that some senators had sent a strong message to President Muhammadu Buhari over the high level of kidnappings and killings in every nook and cranny of the country.
The lawmakers on Wednesday, January 29, asked the president to sack the nation’s service chiefs. Legit.ng gathered that they also called for the resignation of Adamu.
The lawmakers made the demands in their respective contributions to the discussion on the security situation in the country during plenary on Wednesday, January 29.
According to the report, they are Senate minority leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, as well as Senators Musa Sani, Betty Apiafi, and Solomon Adeola.
While Senator Sani called for the resignation of the police boss, Senators Apiafi and Adeola asked the president to sack the service chiefs.
The lawmakers said the service chiefs should be replaced since they do not have new ideas in fighting insecurity in the country.
The service chiefs include Chief of Defence Staff, General Abayomi Olonisakin; Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai; Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar; and the Chief of Naval Staff, Ibok Ekwe Ibas.
Many Nigerians had been calling for the reshuffle of the security architect in the country following the high rate of insecurity in the country.
