The proposition comes amidst growing concerns regarding the safety and security of Nigerian citizens amidst escalating violence and criminal activities across the nation.
Twitter critic, Daniel Regha has said he's against billionaire senator Ned Nwoko’s proposed bill seeking to allow Nigerians to bear firearms for self-defense.
Nwoko proposed the bill following escalating insecurity in the country.
Regha submitted that supporting Ned Nwoko’s proposed firearms bill would only serve to aggravate Nigeria’s security predicaments rather than mitigate them.
In his words;
“Ned Nwoko’s firearms bill should not be encouraged; This willn’t solve the insecurity issue but only worsen it. Let’s assume Nigerians are allowed to obtain firearms (legally), what’s the guarantee that majority won’t missue it, or that these arms won’t end up in the hands of criminals? We have seen how many people break bottles over little arguments/misunderstandings, let’s not add to our problems.”
