5 Igbo Men Supplying Arms to Boko Haram Caught Red Handed

Some men from Imo State, who were heading to the North, were intercepted in Nsukka, Enugu State, by men of the Nigerian Army as they were travelling in disguise with a bus to their destination.

    One of the army officers who spoke to reporters under anonymity disclosed that a Police Corporal also serving in Imo State Police Command was involved in the dirty arms deal.

    The army officer said: “When we asked the occupants of the vehicle to come down, we discovered a police corporal in uniform among them. The corporal on getting down pretended to be pressed; he later ran away."

Items recovered from the suspected Boko Haram arms dealers include 40 AK47 magazines, 4 boxes of AK47 live ammunition, 100 pieces of live cartridges, Mopol khaki and charms concealed in a cap.

The men have all been handed over to relevant security apparatus for appropriate action.
