26 firearms recovered as army discovers gun factory in Kaduna.

A gun manufacturing syndicate was apprehended by Operation Safe Haven troops in Kaduna State, and 26 guns were taken from them.

In a statement he released in Jos on Friday, Captain Oya James, the Special Military Taskforce’s media officer, revealed this.

James went on to say that the find came after a week-long intelligence operation that ultimately resulted in the detention of wanted gunrunner Napoleon John, who had been on the Special Military Taskforce’s wanted list.

“A thorough search of the factory led to the recovery of 22 different weapons including seven pistols, two locally fabricated AK-47 rifles, two military-grade AK-47 rifles, and nine revolvers. Others include one submachine gun, rounds of 7.62mm special ammunition, machine tools, and a gas cylinder.

“In a follow-up operation from midnight yesterday up till early hours of September 22, 2023, troops raided another hideout in Adua 1 village in Kafanchan and captured additional two AK-47 rifles, two revolver rifles, live rounds of 9mm and 7.62 ammunitions, six dangerous daggers, one hacker axe, several empty cases of 7.62mm special rounds, two police uniforms, one military camouflage trousers, among others.”
