The Anambra State Police Command on Tuesday said a cache of arms was discovered by some labourers working at a construction site at Umuowelle, Agulu in Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra State.

Nkeiru Nwode, the State Police Public Relations Officer, said the labourers were digging the foundation of the building when they discovered the arms cache and promptly reported to Neni Police Division.

She said the state Commissioner of Police, Sam Kaula, led a team of officers to the site to supervise the evacuation of the arms cache, which according to her was in different sizes and calibers and worth millions of naira.



    “The Commissioner was there to personally see things for himself. The ammunition are large, and is worth millions of Naira, investigation is still on and soon we shall get to the roots of this,” Nwode said.

    The parcel of land reportedly belongs to an unidentified man who lives in Enugu.

    Acording to the police PRO, the arms cache had been sent to the appropriate units for determination of their calibres, but no arrests had been made.

    She urged the people in the area to remain calm as the police were on top of the situation.
