Army Intercepts Car Loaded With Explosives 

Troops Deactivate 27 Illegal Refining Sites In Niger Delta

Troops of the 13 Brigade, 82 Division, Nigerian Army, have intercepted a Toyota Camry conveying assorted ammunition en route to Utanga village towards Obudu mountains in Cross River State, South South Nigeria.

Gatekeepers News reports that the Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier-General Onyema Nwachukwu, disclosed this in a statement.

He said, “On Tuesday, June 21, 2022, troops deployed in Forward Operating Base, Amana, attempted to stop the vehicle at their checkpoint, but the driver evaded checking and zoomed off.

“The driver’s recalcitrance compelled the troops to open fire on the tyres of the vehicle, thereby immobilising it.

“A thorough search conducted on the vehicle revealed it was conveying 72 Improvised Explosive Device chargers, 121 dynamite liquid wraps, 200 rounds of 7.62 mm (NATO) and 82 rounds of 7.62 mm (Special) ammunition.

“Other items recovered in the intercepted vehicle are military uniforms and kits.”

Nwachukwu asked members of the public to continue to support the military with information that would lead to stemming the tide of insecurity across the country.
