Over 6m Weapons With Civilians, Abdulsalami Raises The Alarm

Miffed by the worsening insecurity in the country, Nigeria’s former Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar (rtd), yesterday expressed concern over the proliferation of all calibre of weapons in the country, which he estimated at six million.

Abubakar, who is also the Chairman of the National Peace Committee (NPC), painted the dire state of affairs in the country at a dialogue session of the committee with stakeholders at Transcorp Hilton in Abuja.

He lamented that the proliferation of weapons has heightened insecurity in the country and has led to over 80,000 deaths and close to three million Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) across the country.
