The Security operatives stationed around Galadimawa axis of Giwa Local Government Area of Kaduna have arrested Abdul Adamu Kinkiba, Councilor of Soba Local Government Area of the state on his way to supply weapons to bandits

Sources said the councillor was carrying the gun on a motorcycle when he was intercepted.
According to a vigilante source, Kinkiba said the gun was given to him by somebody who he could not remember his name.
“He said he was told that the gun was meant for the convoy of someone. According to him, he was instructed to park immediately after the bridge near Galadimawa forest (a known hideout of bandits), where somebody would collect the gun.”
The chairman of Soba local government area, Engineer Suleiman Yahaya Richifa, confirmed that the suspect is the councilor representing Kinkiba ward in the council.
He, however, declined to speak further, adding, “I’m in serious grief about the news. Please allow me to overcome my shock.”
