Chairman Senate Committee on Army, Senator Ali Ndume has made it known that most of the weapons used by terrorists in the country were stolen from men of the Nigerian security forces.
According to reports the Senator who is representing Borno South Senatorial District in the National Assembly, revealed this on Thursday night while featuring on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ programme.
He revealed that, “Most of the arms and ammunition they use are the ones they succeed in carting away from the Nigerian soldiers and other armed forces or security agencies”. “I know they have some small arms coming from up there like Libya, Chad, and all that but the bulk of the equipment they use are the ones they succeeded in stealing from our armed forces and this is what the armed forces are trying to guide against”.
This is coming following series of attacks from the Boko Haram terrorist group in the last 12 years, with their leader Shekau; which seems undefeated.
