At the location, which was said to be a short distance away from the Daycare Centre, the officials found and seized a .38 revolver, loaded with four rounds of ammunition.

The revolver, LoopTT was told, was wrapped in cloth, which was then placed in a wooden box which was buried in the dirt near a tree.

No one was held for the find.
