Insecurity: Nigerians Not Matured To Bear Arms – NSCDC CG

The Commandant General of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Dr Ahmed Audi, has maintained that Nigerians are not ripe to be allowed to bear arms.

Speaking to newsmen in Abuja, Audi stated,  “I strongly disapprove of it. Even now that there is no law in existence, you still have the proliferation of small arms and light weapons in the hands of people. It has to do with civilisation and education.”

He noted, “Even in Europe and America where they have that law where virtually everybody once you can drive can have arms, they are trying to control it now because of how some events unfold.”

He said that “In the world, especially in Europe and America, somebody will just wake up and just go to a school and open fire on kids. You know that is madness. And so for me, I don’t think we are there yet to allow citizens to carry arms.”
