Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has acknowledged that closing the country’s borders for more than a year hasn’t prevented the entry of illicit weapons. The president made the announcement in a statement released Thursday evening by his media aide, Femi Adesina.
“As long as Libya remains stable, the proliferation of weapons in the Sahel region can continue.”

He said that Gadaffi recruited a large number of militants from various countries in order to retain power for a long time, and that after Gadaffi was killed, many of the militants fled Libya with all of their weapons.
President Muhammadu Buhari made the announcement just hours after Chief Sunday Igboho promised that the federal government would reopen the South-West border, which had been closed for a long time.
Suday Igboho announced that all Yoruba land is not part of Nigeria and bemoaned the closing of the country’s borders, which has resulted in starvation among the country’s innocent people.
He promised to reopen the borders and take control of all Yoruba territory’s international airports and seaports.
He also claimed that all Fulanis in the Lagos seaports and Seme border areas should flee as soon as possible because he would mobilize his men to capture the facilities.
