The ammunition including a camouflage military face cap, camouflage belt, a pair of hand gloves and a pair of shoes were concealed along with other personal effects in two vehicles, Chris Osunkwo, spokesperson for the Customs Tin-Can Island Port Command said in a statement reaching Xinhua.

The arms and ammunition and a suspect who was arrested in connection with the seizure, had been handed over to the Department of State Security Service (DSS) for further investigation, he added.

“No unauthorized passenger or trader should trade in arms and ammunition all over the world. It is not allowed,” he said.

“You have to go through due process; authorization with permit, before you move even one piece across the border of another country,” the spokesperson added.

The Officer-In-Charge of DSS at Tin Can Island Port James Udo said the DSS would conduct further investigation on the importation to unravel those behind it. Enditem
