Pandemonium nearly broke out in Gusau yesterday when a cache of arms and ammunition was discovered in the house of a Zamfara lawmaker by security operatives.
According to a reliable source, some men who were arrested with arms in Kano made a confessional statement that they got the arms from the suspected lawmaker in Zamfara State. The raid on the houses of the law maker (names withheld) which was carried out by security operatives led to the discovery of arms and ammunition in large quantity.
“During the search, several AK47 rifles, two boxes of life ammunition and several tins of tear gas were discovered in his residence in Gusau, while a grenade was discovered in his Tsafe residence”, the source said. However, when contacted yesterday, the embattled lawmaker maintained that he was invited by the police and he had made a written statement.
The Zamfara State Command, Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) DSP Lawal Abdullahi, said the operation was carried out by a special team from Abuja but declined to make further comment
