The Kwali division of the FCT Police Command has recovered a locally made double barrel gun from two herdsmen involved in a motorcycle accident at Piri village, along the Abuja-Lokoja road.
A witness mentioned the accident occurred around 3 pm on Monday when the herdsmen had a back tyre burst on their way from Kwaita village to Yangoji.
“I was also riding on my bike when the 2 Fulani men ahead of me were involved in the accident after their back tyre burst. Police males on patrol who arrived at the scene to rescue them found a short gun wrapped in clothes inside a bag they were carrying,” he stated.
A police source at the Kwali division, who preferred anonymity, confirmed the recovery of a locally made double barrel gun from the bag of the 2 herdsmen.
