In what was a setback to the fight against Insecurity in Nigeria, United States lawmakers have blocked the sale of fighter helicopters to Nigeria. The lawmakers have cited that their reasons were based on Nigeria's poor record on human rights violations.
Popular cartoonist Mustapha Bulama has released another cartoon after the news surfaced online. Bulama has captured the reactions of some people in his cartoon regarding the matter.
See some reactions below:
Nigerians have expressed their anger and disappointment towards the blockage of the deal. The blockage is indeed a huge setback to Nigeria's fight against insecurity.
Nigeria is facing and battling with several insecurity issues across the country. Weapons are needed to curb the threats posed by insecurity in the country. The blockage is indeed a setback to the fight against insecurity in Nigeria.
Nigeria should look elsewhere to find another source of getting arms in its fight to end insecurity in the country.
