Recall that it was reported that Amosun had on May 28, a day before he was billed to complete his eight years as governor, called the state police commissioner, Bashir Makama, to confess that he had a cache of arms he was willing to surrender to the police. He claimed he procured the arms and ammunition to check the widespread insecurity in his state of 3,751,140 residents, according to the 2006 census. According to him, he decided to keep them at the Government House Armoury to ensure they were not allocated indiscriminately by security agencies.
The manner with which Mr Amosun turned in the arms has alarmed security officials, who saw the affair as damaging to national security. Nigerians who reacted to the surrendered 1,000 AK47 and 4 million bullets report, took to social media to call for the arrest of Senator Ibikunle Amosun.
