Nigeria’s Senate President, has said that some Nigerians are benefiting from and that they need to be brought to justice.

Speaking on the floor of the Senate after the new service chiefs were confirmed on Tuesday, Lawan said banditry has become a lucrative industry in the country.

He, however, lamented that kidnapping without a trace is not acceptable, urging the new service chiefs to rescue the country from criminals.

He said: “A situation whereby a group of people will go to a school and take over 300 students away on motorcycles is not accepted.

“Kidnapping without a trace — it is not acceptable. Something has to give because, apparently, this is becoming an industry. Some people are benefiting from this and we have to unravel who these people are, and fight bandits and insurgents until we rescue our country.”

Lawan asked the new service chiefs to work together in order to defeat Boko Haram insurgents, bandits, and other criminal elements disturbing the peace of the country.

He said: “Let me also advise the service chiefs that there must be interagency cooperation. The army, the air force; are supposed to have complementary roles.

“We promise them and indeed Nigerians that we will support them in whatever way the parliament can come to their support.”
