Professor Itse Sagay
Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Professor Itse Sagay (SAN), has advised President Muhammadu Buhari and Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to allow ordinary Nigerians have access to fire arms in to protect themselves against insecurity in the country.
Speaking with Daily Independent in Lagos, Sagay said, “What I will like to suggest to the government is that they should allow ordinary Nigerians to carry arms. Everybody who wants to carry arms as a form of self-defence should be allowed to do so. This is necessary so that when these bandits and miscreants attack them, they will know that the person they attacked has the capacity to defend himself.
All these restrictions on owning weapons should be lifted. Let the generality of the public be allowed to own weapons, especially in all those villages where they are being massacred. Their men should be given weapons so that when the attackers come, they will also be given a challenge which may discourage them in future.
We have had causes where bandits attacked villages but the people are powerless to de fend themselves. By the time the security agents come in, the attackers had left. They will look for a quiet time and launch another attack. That will stop if the people have the capacity to defend them selves.”
