Rustlers' paradise: Men and boys brandish AK 47s
A Nation investigation found the bullets and guns being sold in open market centres and manyattas, with the traders unperturbed about security agencies. The trade is so common that in one of the centres known as Kokuro, we were offered bullets just a few steps from a police station.
In Kokuro, a small centre characterised by dozens of manyattas, almost every young man carries a gun, just like a traditional totem. Locals told us the government has ignored them. Here, bullets are sold together with groceries in shops and no one seems bothered about this criminal activity.
