The statement added that the search carried out on the Volkswagen vehicle with Reg. No KNC 816 XC led to the recovery of the said rifle.

“Upon further interrogation, the suspect led detectives to another location where an additional Volkswagen car with Reg. No AX 973 LGA was recovered with the said number of live ammunitions carefully concealed inside the fuel tank aimed at evading the eagle eyes of security Operatives”

“Despite all odds, the Police are not relenting in ensuring that no stone is left unturned in its resolve to reduce crime to the barest minimum.

“However, the Command is soliciting the support of the general public in the area of information sharing, particularly on informant to the bandits that are the root of bandit operations.
