The State Commissioner of Police, CP Shawulu Ebenezer Danmamman, disclosed this during a press briefing at the command headquarters in Minna on Thursday, February 29, 2024.
 
 According to the CP, the suspects were arrested at a poultry farm along Garam/Bwari road via Sabon-Wuse based on credible information.
 
“On 18/02/2024 at about 1410hrs, based on information received that one Nuhu Abdullahi of a poultry farm, Sabon-Wuse area of Tafa LGA was suspected to be among the hoodlums terrorizing the area,” the CP stated.

“Having arrested the suspects from the scene, an immediate on-the-spot search was conducted in the premises of the farm. Consequently, a total of two hundred and ninety-five rounds of live ammunition of AK-47 rifle were recovered, hidden in different bags of grains within the farm.
 
“During interrogation, Nuhu Abdullahi confessed that his elder brother; one Ibrahim Abdullahi 38yrs of Mangu area of Plateau State, sent a sum of two hundred and ninety-five thousand naira 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.
