Allow responsible citizens carry AK-47, Nigerian Governor tells FG

Due to the incessant threat of insecurity towards the development of the country, Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has urged the Federal Government to grant responsible citizens the license to carry sophisticated weapons such as AK 47, in a bid to deter criminals from attacking innocent and helpless Nigerians.

However, Ortom noted that the policy, when considered, would be backed by a strict legal framework to prevent illegal possession of arms by the citizen and without exception.

Governor Ortom made this known on Tuesday during a virtual meeting convened by Centre for Values in Leadership, CVL, in collaboration with Nigeria Governors’ Forum, NGF.

He also recommended adequate funding of security agencies and continuous training of their personnel to enable them to be abreast of global dynamics in the fight against insecurity.
