Worshippers at the Kofar Gayan, Zaria Juma’at mosque yesterday intercepted five locally-made guns. They were concealed in a sack and hidden close to the mosque before a group of worshippers discovered it and alerted others.
A witness said: “We called the police and when they came, we insisted that the guns should be counted. It was after the counting that we discovered that they were five with live cartridges. The police have taken them away.
The state’s police spokesman did not respond to requests for comment.
