Arms Proliferation: Navy Urges FG to Build Walls Across Borders

To help stem the tide of insecurity and the proliferation of arms and ammunition in Nigeria, the Nigerian Navy has said erecting the Berlin kind of wall between Nigeria and her neighbors is urgently required.

The Navy officer represented by Commodore Jemila Ababkar Sadiq stated this on Monday while participating in a public hearing on four security-related bills organized by the House of Representatives Committee on National Security and Intelligence in Abuja.

According to Commodore Sadiq, most of Nigeria’s neighbors lack basic armories to store and keep proper records of the arms donated to them by foreign governments or regional bodies to fight insurgency. She added that soldiers of countries such as Chad sleep with unregistered weapons under their beds and sell the same to make ends meet whenever the need arises.

Also speaking at the hearing, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), expressed the need to regulate the activities of local blacksmiths who it said have become sophisticated in the art of fabricating firearms. According to him, in recent times, blacksmiths have advanced their skills and now possess the capability to manufacture assorted and sophisticated rifles.

Represented by Air Commodore F. G. Okoyi, the DIA commended the proposed establishment of the commission stating that The Ministry of defense should oversee the affairs of the Commission.
