In this widely circulated image of Aisha Gombi Bakari, you can see the homemade revolving shotgun that she uses to hunt Boko Haram Islamic terrorists. The lock up does not look impressive, but it will do for a small number of shots.
The cylinder is probably turned by hand. There are index cuts to make sure it’s lined up with the barrel. Aisha is supposed to be paid about $25 a month, but the payments are spotty. An official has recently been indicted on embezzeling $1.8b dollars marked for anti-terrorism efforts.
It appears she has factory ammunition. Even very poor people with limited tools can make repeating shotguns. But they would be far better served with AK47s, GPS, radios and real support from their government.
