While parading the suspect and some others on Wednesday in Jos, the Commissioner of Police in the state, Bartholomew Onyeka, stated that they were arrested while on a stop-and-search operation on Jos-Pankshin road, NAN reports.

Mr Onyeka said that upon handing over the suspect, the police commenced investigations, adding that in the process, four locally-fabricated rifles were recovered from his house.


He said the command also arrested some other suspects over alleged kidnapping, banditry, armed robbery, and cult activities.

The suspect, however, told journalists that he manufactured the rifles for his personal use.

”I’m a hunter, and I give herbal medicine to people.

”Because I visit the bush regularly, I produced the guns for my hunting and self-protection,” he said.
