Southern Kaduna: Security Agents Arrest Car With Arms


Improved vigilance against the killings in the Southern Kaduna area of Kaduna State paid off today at the Samaru-Kataf round-about, as a golf car carrying two persons, suspected to be herdsmen, was stopped and discovered to be loaded with a large cache of arms.
A resident of Samaru Kataf who witnessed the arrest recalled, “The military men, who are stationed at the roundabout of Samaru-Kataf in Zangon Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna State, arrested a golf car that was carrying two persons at the back seat few minutes after 7am this morning. After a thorough search on the vehicle, it was discovered that the car was loaded with two AK-47 rifles and so many rounds of ammunition. The driver had earlier told the military men that the car was headed to Fadan Karshi in Sanga Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
“When asked why they carrying arms, one of the men suddenly took to his heels, but the military personnel gunned him down. While the injured passenger has been taken to a hospital facility for medical attention, the driver and the other passenger were driven to the Kafanchan Police Area Command for interrogation.
A police officer not authorized to speak to the press confirmed to Forefront that the case was forwarded to the Kafanchan Area Command of the Nigeria Police.
