“We are all aware of the security situations and banditry around us. This command has been working so much not to allow this bandits to infiltrate our state. The Corps Tactical Unit (CTU) command was able to apprehend these two suspects.

“Alhaji was trying to get cartridge for a local pistol for N8,000 and fortunately for him he asked from the wrong person in this process, he was trailed and was arrested.

“It was the the arrest of Alhaji that led to that of John, who sold the local pistol to him and the intelligence unit were able to recover the riffle from him and other dangerous weapons.

“They know that I’m using a gun in the company and they said the gun is not good for security I should go and drop it. I had a leg pain problem. I sold the local pistol to treat myself. I took permission to go and farm, bought chemical for the farm from where I was asked who sold the local pistol to the suspect. The company know that I have the gun. I’m not a kidnapper, but a security man in the gold mining company. The reason why I sold the pistol to him is because he has cows and he sleep in the bush. . I made a mistake for selling the gun to him. I don’t have more guns to sell” he added
