The Niger State Commissioner of Police, CP Shawulu Ebenezer Danmamman, has arrested four suspects for being in possession of 295 live rounds of ammunition and an AK-47 rifle at Sabon-Wuse in Tafa local government area of the state.

Danmamman made the disclosure while parading the suspects in Minna, stating that they were arrested at a poultry farm where the weapons were found based on credible information.

The suspects include Nuhu Abdullahi, 25 years old, Yahuza Isah, 24 years old, and Mohammed Adamu, 42 years old, all of Dadin-Kowa Sabon-Wuse, Tafa LGA.

He explained, “On February 18, 2024, at about 1410 hrs, based on information received that one Nuhu Abdullahi of a poultry farm in the Sabon-Wuse area of Tafa LGA was suspected to be among the hoodlums terrorizing the area.”

“Immediately upon receiving the information, the police operatives attached to Tafa Div, with the Tactical Support Team (TST) led by the DPO Tafa, mobilized to the poultry farm along Garam/Bwari road via Sabon-Wuse and arrested the suspects in connection to the information.”


The CP disclosed that upon arresting the suspects from the scene, an immediate on-the-spot search was conducted on the premises of the farm and the live ammunition and one AK-47 rifle were discovered.

“Consequently, a total of two hundred and ninety-five rounds of live ammunition of an AK-47 rifle were recovered, hidden in different bags of grains within the farm.”

Danmamman further explained that during interrogation, Nuhu Abdullahi confessed that his elder brother, one Ibrahim Abdullahi, 38 years old, of Mangu area of Plateau State, sent a sum of N295,000 to him to purchase arms and ammunition for nefarious activities in Mangu, Plateau State.

“The said Ibrahim Abdullahi was equally arrested and confessed to the crime, while Yahuza Isah aided and connected Nuhu Abdullahi to Mohammed Adamu, a vigilante man in Sabon-Wuse.”

“Mohammed Adamu claimed that he bought about one hundred and eighty units of the ammunition at the rate of N2,200 each from one Rabiu in Kagarko, Kaduna, and took delivery in Jere, Kaduna State, while another suspect named Commander Dahiru of the vigilante, presently at large, supplied the remaining quantity,”
he stated.

Meanwhile, a concerted effort is ongoing to arrest both Dahiru and Rabiu in order to unravel the source of this ammunition.

The case is under investigation at SCID Minna, and the suspects will be charged to court after the investigation.
