He noted that though the service chiefs were doing a lot, the anxiety among Nigerians was enough reason for the military commanders to do more, challenging them to take the battle to criminals.
Gbajabiamila, who spoke at a meeting of the joint House Committees on Defence, Army, Navy and Air Force, with the Chief of Defence Staff, Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Naval Staff and the Chief of Air Staff in attendance, said: “I thought I should be here to encourage everybody that we’re all on the same page.
‘’We all know the situation in Nigeria today, we can’t hide from it, we can’t shy away from it, we cannot pretend that it doesn’t exist.
“We spent practically the whole day on Wednesday (January 29) discussing the security situation in Nigeria as expected. Simultaneously, the Senate was doing the same thing without us comparing notes.
“So, it was a natural reaction to what was going on in the country today. Back home, our constituents are on our necks. People are dying every day, they are dying callously in ways that you can only find in countries without security forces. But we know that you guys are doing a lot.
“We must think outside the box; we must take the battle to these criminals whatever they are . Like I said at the State House the other day, Nigerians are anxious, but I do understand the limitations of the Armed Forces.’’
