The Delta State Police Command has uncovered six assault rifles in a church building located in Okwe community in Asaba, Delta State.

 

The revelation was made by the state Commissioner for Health, Hafiz Inuwa, on Saturday, June 27.

According to Inuwa, a community vigilante named Freeman Eze and the pastor of the church, Christ Holy Church International claimed the weapons were procured for the protection of the church.

Inuwa explained that the police raided the church following a tipoff.

 

“When we got our intelligence on June 23, we just swoop into the area where Christ Holy Church campground is situated in Okwe. We swoop into that place and got one vigilante by name Freeman Eze arrested. Eze is not from Delta State.

However, during the course of our interrogation and investigation at the scene, we were able to recover six assault rifles because pump-action rifles are now a prohibited firearm,” he said.
