On searching the abandoned car, the police operatives found two travelling bags containing the two AK-47s, two cut-to-size locally-made guns and ammunition.
Commissioner of Police, Delta Police Command, Mr Hafiz Inuwa, who confirmed the recovery of the weapons and live ammunition, described the feat as a major one.
