House of Representatives has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to withdraw his executive order, banning the issuance of fresh gun licenses by the Police Force.
Buhari had issued the executive order, as part of moves to reduce the number of weapons in circulation.
The lawmakers says the ban is exposing Nigerians to security threat.
The House passes the resolution after adopting a motion raised by Honorable Uchenna Ukeje.
They say the executive order is ill conceived and should be withdrawn, to allow the Police to resume issuance of gun licenses.
