Police, others Enjoin to Enforce Existing Laws Prohibiting Unlawful Possession of Fire Arms

By Okechukwu Onuegbu

Nigerian Police and other security agents in the country have been called upon to enforcing the existing laws that prohibit individuals from unlawful acquisition and possession of fire arms, and other dangerous weapons.

Speaking in an interview with, Professor Obiajulu Obikeze, who is the immediate Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Igbariam, described the illicit activities of the Fulani herdsmen across the country as barbaric, inhuman and uncivilized, even as he wondered why they should be allowed to possess highly sophisticated guns and other dangerous weapons.

Obikeze, equally charged the federal government to work towards finding permanent solution to the inordinate activities of the herdsmen and their host communities with a view to engendering peace for the unity and progress of the country, as he advocated for total ban of the Fulani Herdsmen from possession guns.

He noted that the attacks, hacking, molestation, maiming, and killing of innocent Nigerians should be condemned in its entirety.

On the 2016 appropriation bill, the Former COOU Deputy VC urged the National Assembly and the member of Executive to expedite action on the passage of the bill into law in order to save the country from persistent economic menace.

He however commended the agricultural policy of the Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, and enjoined the citizenry to rally round him to accomplishing his developmental plans.
