Kaduna State Police Command has arrested a serving Councilor caught in possession of an AK-47 rifle in the Giwa Local Government Area of the state, according to Headlinenews investigative reports.

According to reports, the suspect, Abdulrahman Adamu, who is a serving Councillor in the Soba Local Government Area of Kaduna State, was arrested by the operatives of Operation Puff Adder II attached to the Kaduna Police Command during a routine patrol along Galadimawa Road.

While giving account of how the suspect was arrested, spokesperson of the command, said police officers succeeded in intercepting the councillor, who was moving in a black Lifan motorcycle towards the Galadimawa community with a sack.

The Policemen at that point became suspicious of the sack being carried by the suspect and were prompted to search its content. It was in this process that they discovered an AK-47 rifle loaded with six rounds of 7.62 X 39mm live ammunition concealed inside the sack.

The Police spokesman further revealed that the suspect was arrested and taken into custody alongside the exhibits while preliminary investigation reveals the identity of the suspect, Abdulrahman Adamu, as a serving member in the legislative council of Soba Local Government Area of Kaduna State representing Kinkiba ward.

Headlinenews commends the effort of the Nigerian Police force in Fighting Insecurity in Nigeria and hereby appeal for the support of Nigerians in order for them to succeed in this task. The Police relies on intelligence reports and information from the members of the public, to succeed with this ardous task. We congratulate the Kaduna State Police Command and request other State Commands to work hard at fighting crime and discovering criminals than delving in other people’s family affairs which does not concern them or allowing them to be used as tools to intimidate citizens after collecting bribe. The Nigerian Police must be respected and trusted by all in order to win the confidence of the members of the public. All hands must be on deck to fight crime as the insecurity is increasing. Any Policeman who is suspected to be acting on his personal agenda and not for tackling insecurity should be reported to his superiors. Every Nigerian has a responsibility for this.
