The Herald gathered that Abutu is the chairman of the security committee for the Wada/Aro campaign organisation in Dekina LGA.
The state commissioner of Police (CP), Mr. Hakeem Busari, confirmed this on Saturday, November 1.
Busari disclosed that the arrest was affected by policemen from the headquarters in Abuja.
He said “this morning,” and not policemen in the state that carried out the raid.
The development is coming on the heels of persistent fears that politicians were arming thugs ahead of the November 16 governorship election in the state.
The munitions were said to have been procured to unleash terror on the electorate during the election.
It was learnt that the pump action guns, AK-47 rifles and pistols were reportedly recovered from the suspects.
