The police, at about 10 a.m on Wednesday, in Moriki, Zamfara State, received a tip-off on the movement of ammunition and mounted an emergency stop and search checkpoint.
Not long after, a motor bike arrived with a bag looking like a bag of rice.
The bike man, however, refused to stop for routine checks and the troop had to give a hot chase.
However, the police got the bike impounded while the rider escaped. They later discovered that the bag contained about 4653 rounds of 7.62mm.
