President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the killings and kidnappings being experienced in Nigeria and the Sahel region is caused by the gunmen recruited by late Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi.

The instability in Libya after 42 years of Muammar Gaddafi affects all of us in the Sahel region. 

From Mauritania to Central Africa Republic, Gaddafi recruited gunmen, who learnt to do nothing else than to kill. When the former Libyan Leader was killed, the gunmen escaped with their arms, and are wreaking havoc all over the place now,” President Buhari said.
