Senate President, Ahmad Lawan has said banditry is becoming an industry in the country, insisting that some people are benefiting from banditry in Nigeria.

While speaking after the confirmation of the service chiefs on Tuesday, he described the situation as unacceptable thereby urging the service chiefs to stop the trend in Nigeria.

The Senate President said, “A situation whereby a group of people will go to a school and take away three-hundred students on motorcycles is not accepted.

“Kidnapping without a trace is not acceptable. Something has to be done 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 added, “Let me also advise the service chiefs that there must be an interagency corporation between the army, the air force. They 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”. He said.

The newly confirmed service chiefs are Maj. Gen. Lucky Eluonye Onyenuchea lrabor as Chief of Defence Staff; Maj. Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru (Chief of Army Staff); Rear Admiral Awwal Zubairu Gambo, (Chief of Naval Staff); and Air Vice Marshal Isiaka O. Amao as Chief of Air staff.
