Is This Type Of Weapon Allowed For Private Owners In Nigeria?


Considering all the security issues and house invasions in Nigeria recently, I have been looking for what I can buy at least for self defense temporarily until either law enforcements arrive or they kill me . I'm not one of those people that likes to go down without a fight so I'm working towards some sort of self defense if it happens. I understand that Nigeria is against possession of any kind of firearm so I'm looking at other options. Slingshot came to mind so I searched online and came about this crossbow (picture below) but my question is will it be legal to own this in nigeria? I'm asking for 2 reason, one is importation and custom seizure issue and the second is police arresting me for having a deadly weapon at home. What do you think guys? If it's not allowed, what kind of weapon can someone have for self defense?
