A flamethrower is classed as an incendiary device, that is specifically designed to project fire in a stream that is long and controllable.

This weapon is not so common in Africa, but if well utilized, can bring an end to insurgency.

Terrorist groups in the country are also well-equipped with weapons, which is why the federal government should step up in imploring sophisticated weapons to combat insurgency in the country.

Boko Haram, unknown gunmen, bandits and other criminals destroy the lives and properties of the people, keeping the nation in unrest. These criminals are not welcomed in the country and every possible means to erase their existence should be implored.
