Insurgency: Senate, Chief of Army Saff in shouting match
« on: November 15, 2014, 09:09:34 PM »
Senators and the Chief of Army Staff, Major-General Kenneth Minimah, yesterday engaged in a shouting match following the refusal of the army chief to respond to questions in the presence of newsmen. The Senate Committee on Defence had invited the Chief of Army Staff and other service chiefs to a briefing on the security situation in the insurgency affected areas. Trouble started following a request by chairman of the committee, George Thompson Sekibo, that the army chief should make some remarks. Major-General Minimah, however, insisted that he would not discuss military?s operational strategies in front of the media. The meeting almost ended in a shouting match, as senators demanded that he should make some comments, but the army chief insisted that he would not discuss military operational matters before the press.

Sekibo told newsmen ?As a committee, we have come to find out or have an opinion that the Nigeria Army is doing well.
