Two female suspects who were paraded by the police in Abuja described how they assisted robbers in smuggling guns across states.
Frank Mba, the police spokesperson, presented 11 kidnap suspects, including the two women, last week.
Aisha Ibrahim, 30, one of the accused, described how she transported an AK-47 gun from Lafia, Nasarawa State, to Kaduna State.
Ms Ibrahim claimed she handed the rifle over to her manfriend in Kaduna, who she identified as Babangida, one of the parading suspects.
Hafsat Adamu, the other female suspect, also claimed to have taken a gun from Kujama to Abuja Junction in Kaduna State.
She said she travelled in a commuter vehicle while hiding the gun in a box.
Ms Adamu said one Suleiman (also paraded) gave her the gun in Kujama and received her at Abuja Junction, from where both joined a commercial vehicle to Gwagalada in Abuja.
