Nigerian homemade revolving shotguns

    Pictured are a number of makeshift revolving firearms seized by Nigerian security forces during multiple operations targeting gun runners. In one incident in August last year eleven soldiers were killed by a group of bandits who also “burnt down 4 operational vehicles and vandalized 2 others.” then proceeded to leave with “4 AK-47 rifles and one Fabrique Nationale (FN) rifle belonging to the deceased soldiers.”

    As well as 12 gauge shotgun shells, many of these guns use modified 7.62 ammunition.

    The last picture shows weapons seized from herdsmen suspected of attacking a village in Southern Kudana in February this year.
