    A man nicknamed ‘Super Muslim’ has been denied bail after being charged with firearm and ammunition possession.

    Akili Aquil of Waterhole, Cocorite stood virtually before Port of Spain Acting Deputy Chief Magistrate Cherril-Anne Antoine yesterday.

    He was not called upon to plead and, while bail was not granted, he was advised to make an application as it is his second firearm offence.

    His arrest and court appearance comes after police stopped him in Waterhole and allegedly found him with a pistol and nine round of ammunition.

    Aquil is set to reappear in court on Tuesday 9th February 2021.
