Nigeria's Buhari says border closure failed to restrict illegal weapons

Published
Last month, Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari surprised many when he said an 18-month border closure to restrict illegal weapons had failed.
The land border had been shut since 2019 - but Buhari said illicit arms have continued to flow into the country - raising numerous conflicts.
