Police Discover Illegal Gun Factory In Plateau, Recover AK-47, Pistols, Ammunitions


The Nigerian police have made a significant discovery in Jos, the capital of Plateau State, by uncovering an illegal gun factory. Muyiwa Adejobi, the police force spokesperson, announced this development in a series of tweets on Thursday. The security operatives also seized a fabricated AK-47 and other locally made guns from the site.

"Some of the fabricating machines recovered at the gun factory in Jos. We recovered many well-fabricated guns at the site. See how perfect the fabricated AK47 is. It’s unbelievable," Adejobi said.
He further expressed the force's willingness to collaborate with the operators of the site for the sake of safety. "All these pistols were locally fabricated in the factory in Jos. The guys are talented. We need to work on them, for our good," he added.

In February, the Nigerian Army also took action against illegal arms production in the North Central region. Troops of Operation Safe Haven under Hakorin Damisa IV busted a rifle fabrication factory, arresting one suspect and recovering several arms and ammunition.

The items recovered from the facility include 5 AK-47 rifles, 4 AK-47 magazines, 11 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition, 5 rounds of 9mm ammunition, 21 Dane guns, 4 revolver rifles, 11 pistols with 5 magazines, 17 gun barrels, 6 rounds of 0.44 inch ammunition, a carbide cylinder with accessories, 3 saws, 12 filing machines, 4 hammers, 6 manual drilling machines, 2 electrically operated filing machines, 2 G-clamps, one spraying machine, one Tiger generator, and assorted drilling irons.
The suspect, Mr. Plangji, along with the recovered rifles and other items, is in the custody of the troops for further investigation. The successful operation highlights the commitment of the troops and other security agencies in combating illegal arms proliferation and criminal activities. It also emphasizes the importance of collaborative efforts between security agencies and local communities in safeguarding the nation from threats posed by illicit arms production and trafficking.
