The Niger State Police Command has apprehended 45-year-old Musa Mora from Babana in Borgu Local Government Area of the state for unlawful possession of firearms.

The suspect was arrested with six locally-made single barrel guns and three live cartridges.

Northern City News learnt that the suspect and his accomplice, Babangida Rabiu, an indigene of Dangulu area of Zamfara State, who is still at large, had on two occasions travelled to Benin Republic to illegally purchase firearms.

Mora told newsmen that he bought the guns from Benin Republic and sold them to those who needed them for self-protection.

“I buy and sell locally-made guns and I sell them to people who are in need of guns to protect themselves, but if they do any other thing with it, that is none of my business,” Mora said.

The suspect stated that he had been involved in the business for six years before his accomplice joined him, adding that they were making money from gunrunning.

Asked whether he regretted his action, the suspect said, “I do not regret anything; it is my source of livelihood; I used the money to take care of myself. I don’t kill people with the guns.”

The command’s Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Abubakar, said the suspect had confessed to the crime.

“The police will no longer tolerate unlawful possession of firearms in the state and we have warned people to desist from it or face the consequences of the law,” Abubakar stated.

He said the suspect had been arraigned before a court.
