MNJTF Troops Intercept Illegal Arms Deal Between Niger, Nigeria 🎊 The Scoper Media

IN an effort to eliminate the trafficking of illegal arms across its Area of Operation, Troops of Sector 4 Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) in Kabalewa, Niger Republic, successfully intercepted a Toyota V8 Sequia vehicle travelling southwest from Nigeria.

The vehicle, according to a statement signed by the Chief of Military Public Information, Lt. Col. Abubakar Abdullahi, and made available to the National Association of Online Security News Publishers (NAOSNP), found to be operated by three individuals identified as gunrunners, revealed a hidden compartment built into its double bottom. Inside, the troops uncovered a cache of arms consisting of 4 x Rocket Propelled Guns 7, one AK-47 rifle, complete with a magazine.

Further to the arms discovery, the troops seized additional incriminating evidence from the vehicle, including 2x Nigerian license plates, 4x bank ATM cards, 4x mobile phones, and a customs pass from the Maine Soroa border bearing the date 9/03/2024.

The preliminary analysis of the evidence suggests these arms originated from the notorious Boko Haram terrorist group.

“This interception is a testament to the commitment of MNJTF in maintaining regional security and combating the illegal arms trade,” the statement acknowledged.
