Allow Nigerians to carry arms if insecurity persists –…

Deputy Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Toby Okechukwu, has asked the federal government to allow Nigerians carry arms if insecurity in the country persists. 


Speaking during an interview on Channels Television, the lawmaker representing Aninri/Awgu/Oji River Federal Constituency, lamented that even after some members of the National Assembly issued an ultimatum to President Muhammadu Buhari over insecurity few months ago, the situation has deteriorated rather than improved.


Okechukwu said; 


“The idea of you being a citizen is that you will give up your right to carry arms in so doing you give it to the and the state is to protect you. When they are not able to do that it is a serious situation and the only thing that can avert it is for us to have good leadership. If we continue this way, Nigerians should be allowed to defend themselves.” 


When asked if Nigerians defending themselves means they should be allowed to carry arm, he said; 


“Why not? You want to leave yourself to be killed? By so doing such a call is meant for the state to wake up.

“Security situation has not improved until I am able to go from Abuja to Kaduna the way I used to. In my state the other day they kidnapped a former SSG and some students going back to the university, how can I say it has improved?”
