He said more than 5,000 weapons had been surrendered so far to DIAG in the Taliban's southern heartland.
The Afghan National Army (ANA) and police had also collected some illegal weapons but they were yet to be transferred to DIAG, he added.
A DIAG official said the ammunitions included artillery shells, tank shells, machineguns, kallashinkovs and mortar shells.
