Policemen in Delta State have discovered a sack hidden in the bush containing three AK-49 rifles, two AK-47 rifles, and 207 rounds of 7.62mm live ammunition.

On Thursday, the command received an intelligence report from a concerned vigilante member in Agbarho (name withheld) on the hideout of some suspected kidnappers who have been terrorising Ughelli, Agbarho, Warri, and Sapele, in the bush at Uwurghelli village by the rail tracks.

Sequel to this information, the DPO Agbarho Division, CSP Josephine Ekebuike swiftly detailed and led police operatives to the bush, cordoned off the entire area and carried out an intensive search where the arms and ammunition were discovered.

Commissioner of Police Abaniwonda Olufemi said the command has launched a serious manhunt for the fleeing suspected kidnappers.
