The Director Of Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Texas Chukwu, in a statement on Tuesday, said the army acted on a tip-off and recovered a locally made gun, one pistol and several rounds of ammunition.

The Army spokesperson disclosed that preliminary investigations revealed that the suspects are members of a notorious militia gang led by one Mr Gana, who is now at large.
