The Federal Government of Nigeria has said it is not in support of the ballistic missile tests by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, The Whistle reports.

In a statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Intergovernmental relations, the FG warned North Korea not to proceed with actions that can jeopardise peace in the Korean Peninsula and the world at large.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that the North Korean Government should abide by the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1718 which requires it to suspends all activities related to its ballistic missile programme.

The statement added that it would like the DPRK to fully comply with that UN resolution and desist from any act capable of jeopardising world peace.

The statement reads in part, “Nigeria supports the commitment of the United Nations Security Council in working towards a diplomatic and political solution leading to the full de-militarisation of the Korean Peninsula.

“While we reaffirm our support for the peaceful uses of nuclear energy and strong commitment to nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament, the Federal Government encourages DPRK to return to the 6-party talks.”

Nigeria has joined the global community and powers in condemning the Ballistic Missile fired by the Northern Korea on Sunday.


  1. what does Nigeria know about un and law? If she feel is aware of law, she should release her prisoner of conscience Mr. Nnamdi Kanu of Biafra.

  2. I agree with you Jare Maximillan……the boy that uses his own pocket money along with huge state security vote to buy military warfare equipment in defending his country and a country like Nigeria that share the security vote money among themselves will be sending him a warning. Shigidi fe se ere ete o ni nwon gbe oun so si odo, no bi sink in go sink.

  3. what have they got to do with already made country as N.KOREA and its “Nuclear”mission when they ain’t got enuf dams to generate electricity n underages shooting with impugnity? #AFGHANISTANISM
