On Thursday, Operation SAFE HAVEN (OPSH) troops apprehended two suspects carrying 370 rounds of ammunition.
The bullets were hidden in a Toyota Pathfinder with the Plateau LGT 772 JN registration number.
The driver had attempted to navigate the military checkpoint at Werreng on the Barkin Ladi – Jos highway.
The car collided with the roadblock, killing one of the suspects, according to Major Ishaku Takwa, Military Information Officer. Also Read: Yahoo Boy Tries To Pluck Out His Mother’s Eyes For Rituals

Major General Ibrahim Ali, the Commander of the OPSH, praised the troops for their attentiveness.
Ali reaffirmed the military command’s intention to rid the Plateau and its surrounds of criminal elements.
He asked law-abiding residents to go about their daily lives as usual while providing verifiable information about illegal activity to security services.
Last month, a man on his way to Jos was apprehended with 320 rounds in his possession.
