Police bust ammunition delivery

15 July 2013, 10:01

Abuja- The Nigerian Army intercepted a petrol tanker containing arms and ammunition in the Kebbi State during the weekend.

The weapons intercepted during a joint operation with officials of the State Security Service (SSS) included three AK 47 Riffles, one RPG-2, nine AK 47 magazines, two bombs, three RPG chargers and 790 rounds of 7.62mm of special ammunitions.

One suspect is in custody while two others evaded arrest.

Commanding Officer of the 1st Battalion Lt. Col. Sunday Ilori confirmed the discovery.

“The arrest and confiscation of arms was sequel to the operations of the 1 Battalion of the Nigerian Army with headquarters in Sokoto, against insurgency and insurgent activities within its area of responsibilities,” Ilori said.

He pleaded with the public to continue to provide support to the army and other security operatives towards the current clampdown against insurgents in parts of the country.
