President Muhammadu Buhari has been asked to sack the ”overstayed” service chiefs by the Senate.
The resolution of the upper legislative chamber followed a motion sponsored by Kashim Shettima, senator representing Borno central.
The request by the lawmakers is coming six months after they asked the service chiefs to resign.
Gabriel Olonisakin, chief of defence staff; Tukur Buratai, chief of army staff; Sadique Abubakar, chief of air staff, and Ibok-Ete Ekwe Ibas, chief of naval staff, are all overdue for retirement.
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 its legitimacy
