Hameed AliThe Comptroller General of Nigeria Customs Service, Col. Hammed Ali (retd.), has raised the alarm over increasing influx of illegal firearms into the country.

Mr. Ali, however, said the trend could be reversed if security agencies work hand-in-hand.

The Customs boss spoke in Abuja yesterday when the Acting Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, paid him a visit.

Ali said: “It is a must for us to curtail the influx of firearms. You could recall that the Libyan episode and Mali episode has now created more serious nature of circulation of arms in the whole of Africa.

“The influx of arms is what gives impetus for criminals to operate. If we are able to block and make sure that arms is not circulated the way it is, I am sure we will reduce to minimal the menace. Some of the people who are armed robbers and kidnappers, without arms in their hands, they cannot confront most of their victims”.
