By Our Reporter

A local AK-47 fabrication factory has been uncovered by the police high command in Jos South Local Government Area of Plateau State, as learnt on Wednesday, June 2, 2021.

The Force Public Relations Officer, CP Frank Mba, in Abuja paraded two middle aged men Joe Michael and Iliya Bulus arrested for the alleged fabrication of weapons alongside other 79 suspects.


The suspects according to Mba, were arrested by the operatives of the two major Units of operational and investigative team of the Intelligence Response Team (IRT) and Special Tactical Squad (STS) of the Force across the country for various offences ranging from kidnapping, banditry, armed robbery, culpable homicide, gun running to illegal production and distribution of fake number plates.


Addressing reporters while parading the suspects, Mba expressed sadness that the locally fabricated guns are fast becoming the weapons of choice for criminals terrorizing the country and it portends a great danger to the security of the nation if not immediately curbed.

Mba lamented that the locally fabricated Ak-47 was a masterpiece which would require extra knowledge of an expert to differentiate from the ones made from Europe.
