DELTA: 67-YEAR-OLD GRANDMA ARRESTED FOR GUNRUNNING


Police in Delta State have arrested a grandmother and a butcher reportedly linked to a gunrunning syndicate, Police Commissioner Ari Mohammed said at the weekend in Asaba, the state capital, The Nation Newspaper reports.

He said his men arrested Garuba Sani, a butcher at Oghara Cattle Market for illegal possession of ammunition late last year.

He said the suspect was arrested after a sack he was carrying spilled in an auto crash in December, 2020.

He said the suspect confessed that he received the ammunition from 67-year-old Roseline Abeju with alleged ties to a suspected gunrunner, now at large.

Abeju, a grandmother, said she was attracted to the trade as a means of surviving widowhood.
