With the ongoing killings by some group of people called "HerdsMen" in Benue state, some fellows are making money by supplying guns to the Herdsmen. The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in Jigawa state has arrested Mr Salisu Mahmouda, with weapons heading towards Benue state.

While speaking to journalists in Dutse, the Jigawa state capital on Tuesday, the deputy commander of National Drug
Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in Jigawa, Oko Micheal, disclosed that it has arrested a man with firearms heading to
Benue state.

And according to PREMIUM Times, he said the operatives of NDLEA
were on normal operation around Jahun – Gujungu Road, where the suspect was arrested.

“The suspect, identified as Salisu Mahmuda was arrested on Sunday 4, February, 2018 with some three locally fabricated firearms (2 locally made revolver pistol, one cut to size revolver rifle) with five-rounds of live ammunition,” he said.

NDLEA said the suspect and the items recovered will soon be transferred to the state police command for further investigation.

Salisu Mahmouda, who is identified as the suspect, said he is an indigene of
Kaduna state. He attended a school in Nasarawa where he later became involved in collection of discarded metals
between Nasarawa and Benue state.
He also said two men of Tiv and Fulani ethnic nationalities respectively, ordered for firearms, and he eventually found
someone who fabricated the arms for him in Labara village in Kano.

“I am able to come down here through a friend of mine whom we schooled together in Nasarawa. He is the one that led me to
the man that manufactured the firearms in Laraba village,” he said.

This has left many Nigerians wondering what really is happening. When the county's economy is in quagmire, some citizens have nothing but problems to contribute.
