Maiduguri based Twitter user, Dan-Borno @DanBorno shared a video of Arms dealer being interviewed and wrote:

“……… I sell each bullet at the cost of N100.00 each while AK47 and AK49 goes for N700,000.00 and N1,000,000.00 respectively……”
The only thing that will make you fear them is the AK which we can also afford if Govt will find a way of doing so.

Another Twitter user, Murtala @Murtalaibin
a security reporter with Humangle, retweeted Dan-Borno’s video and explained further:

Police interview with weapon smuggler gives insight into the cost of running terror gangs in Northwest

The AK-103 type rifle cost 900 thousand and resell for 1, million. The other AK is 650 thousand and resells 700 while 7.62 rounds cost 1000 resell 1100.

Some variants of the AK and craft produced AK style rifles cost much lower. Machine guns, Rpg and rear rifles will cost more.

From this interview, it’s clear that gangs need lots of money to buy ammo & sustain operation, which explains partly the kidnapping industry.

According the smuggler he supplies gangs like Turji and Dogo Gide.

A photo shows AK 103 with Gide’s camp while B shows Kachalla Turji with a rear Valmet M62 pattern rifle. Both pics are from Gumi’s outreach which helps with profiling armed groups.
