Senate President Ahmed Lawan on Monday dismissed the country’s security architecture as ineffective.
To the senator, it is time to rejig the set up because of the resurgence of insecurity, criminality and killings across the country.
He spoke against the backdrop of a myriad of security challenges at the weekend.
On Sunday night, gunmen killed 15 people in Plateau State.
Also on Sunday night in Kaduna, gunmen suspected to be kidnappers attacked a vehicle carrying travellers after they alighted from a train at Raigasa station.
They kidnapped two people. By yesterday morning, they called the family to demand N20 million ransom.
Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom alleged that herdsmen shot at him at his farm.
Lawan stated on Monday that “the Senate will take a position on how security in this country should be. I believe personally that we should restructure the security architecture.
He said a major agenda of the upper chamber on resumption of plenary would be how to ensure adequate security for Nigerians.
He lamented that the rise in bandits’ and terrorists’ attacks have destabilised many communities and loss of precious lives.
