LAGOS SEPTEMBER 21ST (NEWSRANGERS)-The Cross River State Police Command says it has discovered a factory producing guns and explosives at Osomba community in Akamkpa Local Government Area of the state.
A team of the command’s Anti-Cultism and Kidnapping Squad, led by Ogini Chukwuma uncovered the factory.
The team recovered the cache of arms on Monday, the Command’s spokesperson, SP Irene Ugbo, has said.
Ugbo told the News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday in Calabar that the operation, which lasted four hours, led to the recovery of remote controlled Improvised Explosives Devices, detonators and several automatic weapons.

She further said that dozens of locally made double barrel guns and pistols were also recovered at the illegal arms factory.
The Command’s spokesperson said that nine suspects were apprehended at the factory, adding that those arrested were “known gun runners”.
Ugbo added: “Once we are done with our investigation they would be charged to court.
“This is a pure act of terrorism for them to be making explosives right inside a community with highly sophisticated remote donators, indicators and so on.
“It’s a huge breakthrough for the command and we are not relenting in our quest to rid the state of crimes and criminalities.
“As a matter of fact, we have taken the war to the criminals.”
