Army Recover Weapons in Southern Kaduna

Troops of Operation Harbin Kunama (II) set up by the Army and the Kaduna State gov­ernment has recovered large cache of arms in Southern Kaduna.
The arms were discov­ered when troops of the 1 Division Nigerian Army embarked on a search of Gwaska, Dangoma, Ang­wan Far and Bakin Kogi general areas of Southern Kaduna.

Among the recovered weapons during the op­eration were 73 Dane guns, four locally-made rifles, one locally-made machine gun and one locally-made pistol.
Others were 260 car­tridges, 14 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition, 63 rounds of 9mm ammu­nition, one locally-made small machine gun maga­zine, a pair of worn out military boot and assorted improvised ammunition and pyrotechnics hidden in dug out pits.
The recently launched operation will also cover some forests in Bauchi, Kano and Plateau states.
In a statement issued by the Director of Army Pub­lic Relations, Brig-Gen. Sani Kukasheka Usman, he said that while efforts are ongoing to track down the owners of the arms and ammunition, “ it is imper­ative to state that the good people of the area have been very supportive and cooperate fully with the military which led to the unprecedented findings.
“Similarly, in sector 1 of the operation which covers Kano State, troops in con­junction with other secu­rity agencies are carrying out operations in suspect­ed armed bandits camps in Falgore forest. The opera­tion is ongoing,” he said.
