The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on Friday intercepted 12 pump-action guns and 374 cartridges in Kogi.

State Commander, Abdulkadir Abdullahi-Fakai made the disclosure to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

Two persons have been taken into custody in connection with the firearms and ammunition.

Abdullahi-Fakai said they were discovered at a NDLEA checkpoint on the Okene-Lokoja-Abuja road.

The suspects, Sagir Isiyaka (40) and Bello Shehu Usman (42), were traveling in a J5 Boxer Bus from Onitsha to Abuja.

“When asked about how they came about such dangerous arms and ammunition, they couldn’t give any cogent reason”, Abdullahi-Fakai said.

The official added that the case has been transferred to the Police Command in Kogi for further investigation.
