Senate President Ahmad Lawan enjoined the service chiefs to tackle the insecurity issues in the country.

Recall that Lawan had on Wednesday two weeks ago referred the request of President Muhammadu Buhari to a committee on Defence for further legislative work.

He gave the Senator Wamakko-led committee two weeks to carry out their assignment and report to the Senate in plenary.

The Senate president in his remarks urged the new Service Chiefs to take the war to the bandits and insurgents and dislodge them in their strongholds.
