The former Service Chiefs were led to the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs by the Senior Special Assistant President Muhammadu Buhari on Senate, Senator Babajide Omoworare. 

The Service Chiefs, led by General Abayomi Olonisakin (Chief of Defence Staff); Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai as Chief of Army Staff; Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Ibok Ekwe Ibas; and Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, were generally considered inefficient and incompetent by many Nigerians. This has to be put in context.

The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, who inaugurated the hall in memory of the deceased, also directed all officers and soldiers to always uphold and perform their responsibilities of protecting the territorial integrity of the great nation.

Buratai, who was represented at the Military Chapel by the Chief of Training and Operations (Army), Major General Nuhu Angbazo, commended them for their commitment and gallantry in the war against insurgency in the North East throughout the year.
