The Nigerian Senate have asked the Service Chiefs to quit as a result of killings of soldiers currently fighting armed insurgency in northern Nigeria.
Chairman of Senate Committee on Army, Senator Ali Ndume tabled the motion on the floor of the Senate via a point of order on Tuesday.
Those who contributed to the motion lamented the implication of the disturbing development stressing that it was capable of frustrating the war against insurgency and banditry.
They noted that many members of the armed forces who are scared of losing their lives have started resigning from the military.
The Vice-Chairman of the Senate Committee on Customs, Senator Ayo Fadahunsi, proposed an additional prayer that demanded the stepping aside of the service chiefs and his prayer was seconded by Senator Betty Apiafi.
The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, ruled on the prayer and it was overwhelmingly supported by all the senators in attendance.
