On Thursday, President Buhari gave an order that security agents should shoot criminals handling AK-47 rifles because,despite government’s effort, small arms are abused everywhere.
He stressed the fact that, AK-47 is a registered weapon meant only for security operatives.
One thing that got to the press, which I read myself, was that anyone with an AK-47 will be shot. This is because AK-47 is supposed to be registered and it is only given to security officials.
We closed the borders for some time, but the intelligence report I’m getting on a daily basis is that those who are conducting the abductions, the killings and so on are still not short of arms and ammunition.

What can be stronger than the fact that the President has ordered security operatives to shoot anyone seen with dangerous weapons like AK-47, on sight, in as much as the person is not a security operative.
However, the insecurity in the country still levels up as bandits keep raging.
