Under the Firearms Act 2004, certain categories of arms and ammunition in the hands of individuals are prohibited; just as it is unlawful to possess lethal weapons without licence. It beggars belief that all law enforcement agencies watch helplessly as herdsmen brazenly violate this law.

The commission said all unmetered R2 and C1 customers should not be invoiced for the consumption of energy beyond the cap stipulated by it.
R2 customers are residential customers who consume more than 50 kilowatt-hours in a month (single phase and three-phase), while C1 customers are small businesses (single and three-phase).
Citing an example, NERC said, “A consumer of XYZ Disco resident in White Acre under R2 (single phase) tariff class has an energy cap of 78 kilowatt-hour per month and a tariff of N24 per kilowatt-hour. The maximum that XYZ Disco can invoice such a customer is 78kWhr x N24/kWhr = N1,872 per month.”
In Mushin, Lagos a residential consumer under R2S tariff class, with an energy cap of 110 kWh per month and a tariff of N24 per kWh, shall not be charged more than N2,640, while a consumer under R2T tariff class shall not be charged more than N3,791.13 (147kWh x N25.79/kWh)
