The Senate has gone into a closed-door meeting with the country’s service chiefs to discuss the extension of emergency rule in Adamawa, Yobe and Borno.

The service chiefs present at the meeting are the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Kenneth Minimah, and the Director General of the Department of State Security, Mr. Ita Ekpenyong.

The Senate has been considering President Goodluck Jonathan’s request for a further extension of emergency rule in the three north-eastern states as a result of the continuing terrorist activities by Boko Haram.

The service chiefs were to brief the Senate last week Thursday but were unable to do so because of the security crisis in the National Assembly.

Inspector General of Police Suleiman Abba is also expected to appear before the Senate at plenary to explain why the police invaded the National Assembly last week Thursday, using tear gas on Senators and Members of the House of Representatives.
