No State Has Been Authorized To Bear Arms – Presidency

The Presidency has refuted claims from the Ondo State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, that some states have been authorized to buy automatic weapons for their security outfits.

Presidential media aide Garba Shehu, who said this in a statement on Tuesday, explained that no state in the federation has been authorized to procure automatic weapons for their security outfits.

Shehu also noted that the Katsina instance being cited was only to train vigilantes to assist security agencies and not to take over their responsibilities.
