Insecurity: Legalize Guns So All Nigerians Can Have It Like Phones — Hon. Yakubu Barde Tells FG



Yakubu Barde, a member of the House of Representatives, has called on the federal government to lift the gun ban so that Nigerians can defend themselves.

Barde, who represents Kaduna state’s Chikun/Kajuru federal seat, made the announcement at a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday.

The member of the People Democratic Party (PDP) was speaking about the latest kidnapping of schoolchildren in Kaduna.

“For me I think the time has come. We should legalise guns, so that if you know I have a gun and you are coming to attack me, all I need to do is to have small training over you — you have AK-47, I have AK-47. If I have better training than you, I will kill you. Simple!”

“Yes, I, honourable Yakubu Barde, I am calling that they should unban guns. Let all Nigerian have guns like phones. But before that, let us be very careful also.

“The necessary machinery should be put in place to ensure that if anyone commits crime with a gun, let justice catch up with him.

“Today, if you legalise that, anybody who doesn’t like you or you have the same girlfriend would just come and kill you. That is the truth. Or one girl will kill another girl because they have the same boyfriend. And do we have the wherewithal to capture criminals like that? Do we have a database of Nigerians that fingerprint can be used to track down offenders. Do we have that? We don’t have. For me, it is even better that way than to be killed in the hands of the bandits.”
