Most arms used by terrorists stolen from armed forces - Senator Ndume

Senator Ali Ndume, has said most of the weapons used by terrorists in the country were stolen from men of the Nigerian security forces. 

Ndume, who also happens to be the Chairman, Senate Commitee on Army, stated this while featuring on Channels TV 'Politics Today' programme on Thursday, April 29.

“Most of the arms and ammunition they use are the ones they succeed in carting away from the Nigerian soldiers and other armed forces or security agencies.

“I know they have some small arms coming from up there like Libya, Chad, and all that but the bulk of the equipment they use are the ones they succeeded in stealing from our armed forces and this is what the armed forces are trying to guide against,” he said. 

Ndume, who is representing Borno South Senatorial District in the National Assembly, also advocated more funding for security forces so as to purchase superior weapons to effectively tackle the Boko Haram menace especially in the North-East.
