Bauchi State Governor, Senator Bala Mohammed has ordered the demolition of a house where over 1,000 rifles were discovered.
The building was located in a densely populated area in Bauchi metropolis after security agencies received information from some good Samaritans.
This came barely four days after the governor put forward an explanation on the statement of Governor Bala Mohammed justifying Fulani herders carrying AK-47 for self-defence.
In a statement on Sunday, February 14, Muktar Gidado, a senior special assistant on media, said the comment of the principal was misunderstood.
Governor Mohammed, represented by his Chief of Staff, Dr Ladan Salihu, during the demolition exercise on Wednesday in Bauchi, said a sack concealed with over 1000 ammunitions as well as military and immigration uniforms was discovered in one of the rooms in the house.
He said security agencies discovered the ammunition after they received information from some good Samaritans.
The governor said he ordered the demolition of the house to serve as a lesson and deterrent to those hoarding arms or criminals in their residences.
He said the police had commenced an investigation into the matter.
