Furthermore, one light assault weapon, six Dane guns, and 18 rifle magazines were found.
Ahmed Wakil, a Superintendent of Police and the state police public relations officer, revealed this in a statement made accessible to press on Wednesday.
He said that Wakil, a superintendent of police, revealed that three military camouflages, four machetes, nine rounds of live 7-62.51mm NATO ammunition, seven rounds of live 9mm ammunition, and 22 rounds of live 7-62.39mm NATO ammo were all discovered in equal amounts.
Wakil claims that the police carried out a number of risky operations and rounded up guns around the state, leading to notable successes and recoveries.
It is important to note that the command’s achievement of this milestone can be attributed to a strategic review of its operational strategy, which was carried out in close collaboration with other sister security agencies and through community partnerships (also known as “community policing” schemes).
Aminu Alhassan, the state’s police commissioner, told the good people of Bauchi that there would be appropriate security before, during, and after the 2023 gubernatorial and state assembly elections.
