A former senator who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the 8th Assembly, Shehu Sani, has urged the Federal Government to legalise carrying of weapons by individuals for self protection.
Sani on Thursday said since the government and security operatives have failed to secure the citizens, they should be allow them to defend themselves in the heat of growing insecurity in the country.
AN24 had reported how terrorists on Monday night bombed the Abuja-Kaduna rail tracks and attacked a train filled with passengers.
But reacting to the recent security situation in a tweet on his Twitter handle, Sani noted that the government’s alleged inability to tame terrorists demand that people be allowed to protect themselves.
He wrote, “If the government and security agencies can’t crush these terrorists and Bandits kidnapping and killing our people in Northern and Southern Kaduna, people should be officially allowed to carry same weapons and let’s see who owns the land.”
