The Nigerian Police Force has revealed how it over the weekend, discovered a fresh arms manufacturing site at Ikache village in Oju local government area of Benue State.



Recovering locally fabricated firearms at different levels of completion, Naija News understands that this is coming about two months after troops of the military spike operation in the state codenamed ‘Operation Whirl Stroke’ uncovered a similar plant in Logo local government area of the state.

Parading the arms manufacturer in Makurdi, the Police Commissioner Mr Garba Mukaddas said the suspect, a 37-year-old father of five, Orohu Akodi was arrested following a tip-off.



“We gathered the information that he manufactures prohibited firearms and supplies same to criminals. Our investigation led to his arrest and a search in his house led to the recovery of three assorted live ammunition, two empty shells of expended ammunition and parts of locally made guns,” Mukaddas said.

The alleged arms manufacturer in his confessional statement to reporters said, “I have been in the business of manufacturing guns for over seven years though I hardly stay at home, I always travel to Lagos because my family reside there.

“Most of the guns I made were for people from Cross River State. When they had their crisis sometime back, some of the people needed guns and they approached me to manufacture for them I did and I sold each to them for as low as N7,000.”



The Police Commissioner assured that the Command would carry out a thorough investigation into the respective cases of the suspects and arraign them accordingly.

Meanwhile, In another development, the Benue State government has restated its commitment towards addressing the increasing rate of unwanted pregnancies occasioned by the high rate of unprotected sex in the state.
