The General Officer Commanding GOC 2 Division, Nigerian Army, Major General Aminu Chinade, has described the establishment of the National Centre for the Control of Small Arms and Light Weapons as very appropriate and timely, based on Nigeria’s security situation.

Chinade stated this when the South West Zonal Coordinator of the centre, Shola Akinlade, and his team paid him a courtesy visit at the Division Headquarters in Ibadan.

The GOC, while commending the National Security Adviser for the establishment of the centre, said he was happy and encouraged with the calibre of people chosen to serve at the centre.

He enjoined the Zonal Coordinator and the entire workforce to remain focused on their mandate and core duty as Nigerians were watching and relied on them to rid the country of illegal arms and weapons.
