Nigeria to establish domestic arms factory: President Buhari
August 8 , 2015
Nigeria’s president Muhammadu Buhari has said that the country will set up a domestic arms factory to reduce its dependence on imported weapons.
The president has ordered the defense ministry to start planning to build a "modest military industrial complex”.
The Nigerian military has been fighting the Boko Haram militant group for several years, with mixed results.
The US does not sell weapons to Nigeria because of human rights concerns.
