The gun is extensively used by the United States Armed Forces and is largely replacing the M16 rifle in United States Army and United States Marine Corps.

Wanjigi ,who is represented by lawyer Kiogora Mugambi, was charged at the Nyeri law courts on Thursday.

The court told the lawyer to supply the businessman with charge sheet and appear in court on March 5 for directions.

“They will be no need to serve him afresh. The summons are genuine and worth issued, signed and stamped. He should appear here on Monday,” the judge said.
