The Senate will on Wednesday (today) grill the security and service chiefs in the country over the rising spate of insecurity.
Shortly before the session was adjourned on Tuesday, President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, urged senators to prepare for the briefing on Wednesday.

Wednesday session is usually aired live on the Nigerian Television Authority.
Saraki said, “Let me remind you that tomorrow, we are expecting all the service chiefs and heads of security agencies following our resolution of last week…for 11 am. Please ensure attendance. All service chiefs and heads of all the security agencies. That includes the DSS, IG and others.”
