    If you have suspects of this heinous crime in your custody, please prosecute them. That is the right thing to do.

    Sometimes I use to think that everything about Nigeria is the same with nigeria filmsl, can you imagine the importers of pumping action being paraded as a terror sponsors, is it not the pumping action that people use to buy with a licence? Was it not the same pumping action that all the registered vigilantes groups and modern hunters use in their services, why all the noise as if the importer has deals on Ak 47, kalaschinikov, smg. 28 police special, weston&lees and mgs. Please if you dont know that gun stop commenting rubbish

    Is it that he don’t have the license to import it, or he refused to pay bribe demanded from him? ordinarily, anyone can buy pump action gun and get licensed to use it for private security. Like all the vigilante outfits we all know, this is the type of gun that allowed for them to use.
