The Nigerian Army says it has arrested a suspected gun runner in the state and retrieved 10 locally made rifles from him.

50- year-old Ahmadu Mohammed was arrested by troops of 1 Division, deployed to Operation Whirl Punch.

The suspected arms dealer was intercepted on his way to Pandogari in Niger State, to deliver the weapons to one Yunusa Madaki, a bandit on the wanted list of security agencies.

Mr Mohammed is also accused of supplying weapons to bandits and kidnappers terrorizing people in Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
