The multi-security task force maintaining peace in Plateau and some parts of Bauchi and Southern Kaduna States, Operation Safe Haven (OPSH), has recovered 130 small arms and ammunition.

Major General Abdulsalami Abubakar, the Commander (Operations) of OPSH, made the disclosure on Monday and vowed to mop up all illicit arms and light weapons from criminals in the affected areas.

Speaking at the OPSH headquarters in Jos, Plateau State, while handing over the weapons recovered by troops from bandits to the National Centre for the Control of Small Arms and Light Weapons (NCCSALW), called on the public to support the federal government in its effort to eradicate illicit arms in circulation.

Major General Hamza Ibrahim Bature, (Rtd), the North Central Zonal Coordinator of NCCSALW, commended the troops, saying, “This is the second time that illicit weapons recovered from unauthorised persons are being handed over to us in the state.”
