Did the Minister of Defence just say that Nigerians are cowards and they should defend themselves???
Or was he quoted out of context?
Anyway I have some of the most vicious dogs ever in my compound so bring it on.

How can the Minister of Defence say Nigerians should defend themselves against bandits without legalizing guns for us? Is it kitchen knife or laptop we will use to block bullets?

If the Minister of defence can tell Nigerians to defend themselves against bandits, then we are officially on our own. May the Lord help us .🙏
