The Federal Government blamed Libya as the cause of Boko Haram insurgents in the country.
It particularly linked the insecurity challenges facing the country on the death of former Libya dictator, Muammar Gaddafi.
The government added that most of the weapons used by the Boko Haram sect are imported from Libya.
Minister of Interior, Comrade Abba Morro, said this in Abuja, when he received United Nations experts on Libya in his office.
Moro said part of the security challenges the country is currently facing generated from the activities in Libya.
His words: “Government believes that part of the problems that we have today, the challenges of internal security stemmed from the activities in Libya.
“It is indeed an open secret that even though, we did not share common border with Libya, arms and weapons have found their ways into Nigeria from that North African country.”
The minister, who believed that terrorism is fast becoming a global phenomenon, said with the death of Gaddafi, the first phase of Libya’s problem was over.
He assured the experts that Nigeria as a member of the U.N Security Council would adhere to any decision taken by the body on Libya.
