The Nigerian Senate has summoned the Honourable Minister of Defence, Gen.

The senate summoned the trio in today’s meeting after the Nigerian Air Force successfully purchased six fighter helicopters to support the military in the war against insurgency.
They were summoned on the grounds that the money used to purchase the helicopters was not approved by the national assembly.
