The Customs has intercepted arms and ammunition as well as military equipment hidden in two cars imported from the U.S. The Customs Area Comptroller of Tin-Can island Comptroller Yusuf Bashar, stated this yesterday in Lagos.
“We got a hint that there is a magazine in a used Toyota car 2004 model with Chassis No 2T1BR32E54C309841. Customs officers isolated the vehicle to give it a thorough checking. We discovered 10 pieces of life rounds called Hornady ammunition with the magazine,’’ the controller said.
Bashar said no suspect had been arrested because the seizures were just coming out of the vehicle. The items have now been handed over to the Department of State Security (DSS) for custody of the ammunition because they are too dangerous to be with unauthorised persons.
