The acting Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu, on Sunday, January 27, in Abuja warned those in the country who unlawfully have weapons in their possession to immediately surrender same to the nearest police station.
Adamu's warning was informed by intelligence information indicating that there is a massive number of illegal arms in the possession of some Nigerians.
According to the intelligence report, the desperation of those in possession of illegal arms and the desire to increase the number of such weapons have serious security risks in the country.
Following this, the IGP placed a restriction on the issuance of new licences for some arms in all parts of the country, adding that there will be grave repercussion for those who refuse to heed to the warning.
