Police uncover 6 assault rifles inside a church building in Delta state

Delta State Police Command says it has discovered some weapons in a church building in Okwe parish in Asaba district of the state.

State Police Commissioner Hafiz Inuwa told our source on Saturday that the investigation into the matter had begun.

He revealed that this employee of the command had discovered the banned firearms hidden in the Christ Holy Church International building in the state capital.

According to the police chief, a vigilante and a pastor, Freeman Eze, were arrested during the rescue, claiming that the firearms were intended for the protection of the church.

Inuwa stated that the police were taking action following an intelligence report they received at the church site on 23 June.

When we received our information on 23 June, we simply stormed into the area where the Christ Holy Church campground in Okwe is located.

“We stormed there and arrested a vigilante named Freeman Eze. Eze is not from Delta State.

“However, during our interrogations and investigations at the crime scene we were able to secure six assault rifles, as pump-action rifles are now banned,” he said.

The commissioner explained that the suspects admitted that the recovered weapons were intended to serve the safety of the church.
