According to LIB, Sagay said this in an interview with Daily Independent buttressing that subject above that the federal government was overwhelmed by various security challenges across the country such as Boko Haram, insurgency, banditry, kidnapping, herdsmen attacks and others. Sagay believes the government must allow Nigerians to carry arms to be able to defend themselves during an attack.

He further stresses that attacks on villages by banditry will reduce drastically if the villagers are allowed to possess a weapon to defend themselves.

 In his words; 

“The country has become so dangerous. All sorts of things are happening nowa­days. You have kidnappers, bandits, Fulani herdsmen, Boko Haram. The reality is that there is nowhere that is safe in the country. Traveling by road today is a very risky endeavor that one will hard­ly try. So, there is total insecu­rity in the country.

I don’t know what has gone wrong, why our people have become so violent and savage. Individuals no lon­ger feel safe outside his own house. I am not even sure that one is absolutely safe in his own house.

What I will like to suggest to the government is that they should allow ordinary Nigeri­ans to carry arms. Everybody who wants to carry arms as a form of self-defence should be allowed to do so. This is necessary so that when these bandits and miscreants attack them, they will know that the person they attacked can defend himself.

All these restrictions on owning weapons should be lifted. Let the generality of the public be allowed to own weapons, especially in all those villages where they are being massacred. Their men should be given weapons so that when the attackers come, they will also be given a chal­lenge which may discourage them in future.” he said

Is this a good suggestion to the president? Is this a good solution to Nigeria insecurity problems?
