The PPRO did not say how the suspect obtained the Chinese-made pistol, but one thing is certain: weapons trafficking and widespread availability are the root causes of armed robbery, cultism, communal conflicts, and political instability, and they pose a threat not only to national security but also to long-term development.

The widespread proliferation of small arms is contributing to alarming levels of armed crimes and militancy.

Nigeria is seeing an increase in gun-related crimes as a result of little or no effort to prevent the entrance of these light weapons.

The Lagos state police command have said Bamidele and the exhibit have been taken to the State Headquarters for additional investigation as efforts to apprehend the fugitive suspects continue.
