In light of the security challenges rocking the country, the House of Representatives has yet again implored President Muhammadu Buhari to tinker with and revamp the security architecture of the country.

The call is coming in the wake of the recent abduction of students of Government Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina State.

The abduction has also led to renewed calls for the removal of service chiefs.

The lower legislative chamber also charged the federal government to ensure the safe return of the students to their parents.
