The State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni made this disclosure when he led his men to the site of the factory located at Amyuwogbu-Ibilla in Oju.

He said the legal factory owner, Abi Odah, was arrested alongside his son, Kingsley Abi, and one other, Thomas Ode, alias Tommy Tommy.

Owoseni, who also paraded the three suspects before newsmen at the Oju Divisional Police headquarters in Oju, explained that his men were originally investigating a case of abduction and rape when they discovered the factory.

He said that 19-year-old Kingsley and his friend, Tommy, 17, were earlier apprehended following an allegation of abduction and rape of a 15-year-old girl; but that while the Police was tracing evidence of the crime to Kingsley’s home, they found prohibited items in his father’s workshop behind their house.

“Some of the locally fabricated equipment use AK-47 prohibited ammunition,” Owoseni said.

The suspect, Abi, however, denied that all the tools belonged to him despite admitting that he manufactured dane guns for hunters and had sold many of them to those who patronised him.
