Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba State, on Tuesday 2nd February 2021, while welcoming the 15 Chairmen of the state’s Local Government Area that were on condolence visit of their member that was kidnapped and murder, appealed to the Federal government to legalize licensed guns to all Nigerians for self-defense.
According to Governor Ishaku,
“The security in this country has gone to the lowest ebb and we have to all wake-up. We as leaders have given our advises severally as to the change to the security architecture, you cannot keep doing one thing over and over and expect a different result.”
He said, “if we cannot be able to provide security for our citizens, then allow all the citizens to buy AK-47 because if everybody is licensed with AK-47, I swear nobody will come to your house, or peradventure he does then it depends on who is faster.
“In a situation where we are all gagged with one security system that has been unable to work, and we are told to sit down and be counting the day our turn will come, I do not agree with it.”
