Five suspects in Kaduna have been arrested over alleged unlawful possession of firearms.
The command’s spokesman, ASP Mohammed Jalige, who confirmed the arrest on Sunday in Kaduna said that their arrests followed a report received by the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in Kubacha.
He said that the DPO had acted on the information received on July 24 that the suspects, armed with dangerous weapons, were engaged in unwholesome activities in Kenyi village in Kagarko Local Government Area of the state.
The police spokesman said that the suspects and some of the villagers had allegedly threatened the peaceful coexistence of the people over a disputed piece of land.
He said that the situation had deteriorated to a boiling point, resulting in one of the warring parties threatening to kill their opponents with dangerous weapons.
“On receipt of the information, the DPO immediately mobilised to the scene and averted what would have been a tragedy and arrested the five suspects, all from Kenyi village.
“Items recovered from the suspects included an AK-47 rifle, loaded with 29 rounds of live 7.62 x 39mm ammunitions and a 9 x 18mm. Makarov pistol, loaded with seven rounds of 9mm live ammunition,” he said.
Mr Jalige added that the police operatives’ swift response not only forestalled “the foreseeable calamity but also restored normalcy in the community.”
