The United Nations (UN) has raised the alarm that over 350 million of illicit small arms and light weapons (SALW) are in hands of agitators threatening Nigeria's existence.
This was disclosed by Director of UN Regional Center for Peace and Disarmament in Africa (UNREC), Mr Anselme Yabouri, while speaking at the ongoing Physical Security and Stockpile Management Standard Operating and Administrative Procedures Validation Workshop in Abuja.
While speaking at the workshop organized by the UNREC and Presidential Committee on Smalls Arms and Light Weapons (PRESCOM), Mr. Yabouri said Nigeria has been flooded with which is threatening the existence of the country, as well as lives and properties of the people.

He said, “The illicit proliferation of SALW has had a dramatic impact on peace and security in Africa, threatening not only the existence of the state but also the livelihoods of millions of people across the continent.
“Nigeria is one of the countries experiencing some of the most devastating effects of the proliferation of SALW as a result of the spillover effect of the recent crises in Libya and Mali as well as unresolved internal conflicts in different parts of the country, especially in the North East, Niger Delta and southern regions.
“While reliable data on the numbers of these weapons circulating freely in the country is unavailable, analysts have in recent times estimated that of the about 500 million weapons that may be circulating in West Africa in 2010, some 70 per cent of these could be found in Nigeria.”
