He said: “We believe that with the operational equipments available here, we will be able to curb movement of illegal arms. So we believe that it will bring about reduction, prevention and neutralisation of all threats to security in Nigeria.

“Also, with this border, we believe that it will generate revenue for Nigeria because in the past, goods and other items go through the illegal border. But with this, the illegal and porous borders will be closed for now.”
