ARMS PROLIFERATION AND CHALLENGES OF NATIONAL SECURITY AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IN NIGERIA
The paper examines proliferation of arms which no doubt remains a major threat to Nigeria’s security. This is considering the fact that there has been a consistent increase in the volume of illegal arms in the country which is almost turning the country into a nation preparing for war. The paper finds out from extensive reading of related materials that Nigeria porous border, money laundering among other factors are major causes of arms flow into the country. The paper contends that all control initiatives have not worked effectively as illegal arms flow is still on the rise. The paper reveals that the proliferation of arms has created an ever expanding circle of violent conflicts and hampered sustainable development of the country as all areas of socio-economic development are affected. The paper concludes that recommendations on solution to the scourge must emphasise local content that will enhance the instrument and frameworks for combating the proliferation of arms in Nigeria.
