The Nigerian Army has destroyed over 900 arms and ammunition in Rivers State, South- South of Nigeria.

The Army authorities on Sunday said destroyed arms was the outcome of the 60-day disarmament exercise conducted by officers and men of 6 division of the Nigerian Army.

The weapons, including explosives, were recovered during the state government’s amnesty programme which was concluded in November 2016.

Thousands of cultists and their gang leaders from Ikwere and Obio Akpor Local Government Areas had surrendered their arms during the grace period given by the state government.
