In 1998, Leesi Mitee was hired by the United Nations as the National Consultant (Nigeria) for the Capacity Development for Social Reconciliation Project. Its goal was to research and analyse legislation on Arms (Weapons) Control in Mali, Cameroon, Nigeria, and Ghana with a view to assessing the juridical foundations of the proposed West Africa Moratorium on Small Arms (light weapons). Based on the findings and recommendations of the Project, on 30 October 1998, sixteen states in West Africa signed the Moratorium, thereby agreeing to ban the production, import, and export of small arms for a three-year trial period, which enabled the United Nations to commence its implementation.
