Nigeria is devastated by the spread of tiny guns, says Gen. Obot

Nigeria has been devastated by the spread of small arms and light weapons in the nation.

When speaking with media in Cross River State, Major General Ifiok Obot (ret. ), the South-South Zonal Coordinator of the National Center for the Control of Small Arms and Light Weapons (NCCSALW), made this statement.

Obot stated that the center is committed to combating the spread of small arms and light weapons in the nation, which is why he is asking the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, for support. He also noted that collaboration among stakeholders is necessary to fulfill the responsibility of ending the spread of small arms and light weapons in Nigeria.

It couldn’t have come at a better moment, he said, for President Muhammadu Buhari to establish this center on May 3, 2021, in accordance with Article 24 of the ECOWAS Convention on Small Arms and Light Weapons.

Since our business is focused on intelligence and advocacy, we recognize that there is no way we can achieve our goals by ourselves. Without the assistance and backing of the media, there is no way we can produce any kind of noticeable outcomes. Therefore, as we work to complete this extremely important task, we ask for your cooperation and support.

Comrade Nsa Gill welcomed the team and praised them for their resolve to stop the flow of illegal weaponry into the nation, which has increased security.

He gave them his word that NUJ would offer them assistance and support so they could be successful.

“We are aware of the terrible consequences of the smuggling of illegal arms and other weapons into our nation. We experience security incidents every day.

A threat to one’s security is a threat to all of us. We are taught as journalists to advance national security and interest. The NUJ head said, “We will work with you to put an end to this sinister security threat.

Gill noted that, especially with the impending general elections, the difficult task of stopping the illegal trafficking of guns in the neighborhood has become extremely critical.
