The Senate decided to summon the minister and security chiefs following a motion moved by Senator Bello Mandiya from Katsina State on the abduction of about 330 students of a secondary school in the state last Friday by gunmen.
The Senate has summoned the Minister of Defense, Bashir Salihi Magashi and the service chiefs to appear before it over the prevailing security situation in the country.
Also invited was the Inspector General of Police and the Director General of the Department of State Services (DSS).
The Senate also called on President Muhammadu Buhari to execute the report of the Senate Committee on Security challenges without further delay.
Many of the Senators, while making contributions to the motion, specifically passed a vote of no confidence in the various heads of security agencies in the country over their failure to prevent the abduction of the innocent children.
