Turkey Set To End Arms Smuggling Into Nigeria

The Turkish authorities have expressed their readiness to enter into an agreement with the Federal Government to stop further illegal importation of arms into Nigeria.





The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, disclosed these in an article he released on Sunday at the end of President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to Turkey during which he participated in the ninth Summit of the Developing 8 (D-8).


The presidential spokesman said although Turkish authorities debunked the issue of smuggling of illicit arms allegedly from Turkey, they nonetheless agreed to enter into agreement with Nigeria that their ports, harbors, airports and territories will never again be used as transit points for such trafficking originating from other lands.


He said the two governments agreed to support each other in the fight against terrorism, human trafficking, drugs trafficking and arms trafficking. He also said Turkey specifically mentioned the menace of the Fethullah organisation which they accused of terrorism and involvement in the abortive coup plot last year.
