PSSM Training in Nigeria

BICC held a two-day training course on physical security and stockpile management in Abuja, Nigeria on 12 to 13 August 2015. This training session was organised in conjunction with the Nigerian Presidential Committee for Small Arms and Light Weapons (PresCom).

The training was attended by approximately 10 members of the Committee and 20 members of the various Nigerian security services. Training was provided by Captain Laurentius Wedeniwski, from the Verification Centre of the German Armed Forces, and by Daan Redelinghuys, a senior technical advisor from the Mines Advisory Group. Topics covered included “An Introduction to the International Arms Control Standards” and “Physical Security Measures – Internal and External.”

As indicated by evaluation forms distributed at the end of the course, feedback from the event was positive. Furthermore, the armorers who were among the participants agreed to go back to their depots and submit an outline of their needs to PresCom. These needs assessments will be shared with BICC in due course.
