Taraba Governor, Darius Ishaku has advised that in a bit to address Nigeria’s security challenges, corps members should undergo military training for an extra year to enable them to protect themselves.

Ishaku in a televised interview on Wednesday, July 7, 2021, said after the military training, “anybody who graduates as an NYSC person can know how to handle a gun, can know how to defend himself, just like it is done in other countries like in Israel, Lebanon and other places."

The governor went on to say that the Federal Government must be proactive in tackling insecurity, and ensure law-abiding citizens are equipped to protect themselves against aggressors.

He also recommended that residents of vulnerable communities at border areas must have adequate weapons handling training so that they're not completely defenceless against attacks.

"You can't leave human beings like that — at the whims and caprices of somebody who moves with an AK-47. This is wrong," he said.
