Fani-Kayode visits Igboho in Ibadan , asks that Nigerians be permitted to carry guns for self defence
A former Minister of Aviation who is rumored to be back at Apc , Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has said Nigerians should be licensed to carry sophisticated arms like AK-47 if Fulani herdsmen are permitted to secure themselves with the same type of weapon.
He said this on Thursday on his visit to Chief Sunday Adeyemo, who is popularly known as Sunday Igboho, at his residence in Ibadan.
Fani-Kayode said the best strategy to tackle the insecurity facing the nation was for the government to rise up to its responsibility to defend the people.
He, however, said another option to reduce mindless killings of law-abiding Nigerians was for the government to permit individuals to bear arms.
The former minister said since the Minister of Defence, Major General Bashir Magashi (retd), also urged Nigerians to defend themselves against kidnappers and killers, they should be allowed to carry sophisticated weapons to defend themselves effectively.
Igboho said he adopted what Fani-Kayode said, saying he was against criminal herdsmen and other criminals
