Operation Safe Haven (OPSH), a military task force maintaining peace in Plateau, Bauchi and Kaduna States, has uncovered a gun factory at Kafachan, Jama’a Local Government Area (LGA) of Kaduna State.

Capt. James Oya, the Media Officer of the operation, disclosed this in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday.

Oya said they had also arrested a suspected gunrunner and recovered various types of weapons and ammunition, noting that the feat was possible owing to a week-long operation conducted by OPSH troops.
He said, “In line with our resolve to deal decisively with sponsors and perpetrators of crime, as well as mopping up illegal weapons in our joint operation area, our troops have uncovered a gun manufacturing factory in Kafanchan, Jama’a LGA of Kaduna State.

This followed a week-long intelligence operation that finally led to the capture of a wanted gunrunner, Napoleon John, who has been on our wanted list.“The suspect, who confessed to the crime, led troops to a concealed factory where arms of different calibre were sold by another miscreant identified as Monday Dunia.

Dunia confessed to having been in the business for more than five years, fuelling the crisis in Kaduna State and neighbouring Plateau.

”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,” he said.
Oya added that the troops also recovered one submachine gun, rounds of 7.62mm special ammunition, machine tools and a gas cylinder.

”In a follow-up operation held between Thursday night and early hours of Friday, troops raided another hideout in Adua 1 community of Kafanchan and recovered 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 mobile phones, one fragmental jacket, two Police uniforms, one pair of military camouflage trousers, one ammunition magazine carrier, one pistol holster and one military grade camel pouch. We also recovered one police combat helmet, two masks, four identity cards, gunpowder, shrapnels, charms and amulets,” he stated.
According to him, the Commander of the operation, Maj.-Gen. Abdusalam Abubakar commended the troops for the feat and urged them to do more.

He, however, warned sponsors and perpetrators of criminalities to abandon their evil ways and embrace lawful means of livelihood, while thanking residents of the state for cooperating with the military and other security agencies and calling for more support towards a peaceful Plateau. (NAN)
