The Troops of 13 Brigade operating under command of 82 Division, intercepted a Toyota Camry car with registration number JAL 492 AA, loaded with assorted ammunition while travelling to Utanga village towards Obudu Mountains in Cross River 

At first the gallant troops tried hard to stop the driver  at Operating Base Amana, but attempts to stop the vehicle at their checkpoint failed as the driver evaded the checking and zoomed off. The drivers recalcitrance compelled the troops to open fire on the tyres of the vehicle, thereby immobilizing it. 

A thorough search which was conducted on the vehicle revealed concealed dangerous weapons and ammunitions. The driver was conveying 72 Improvised Explosive Device chargers, 121 Dynamite Liquid, 200 rounds of 7.62 mm (NATO) and 82 rounds of 7.62 mm (Special) ammunition.

Addition to the found items  in the intercepted vehicle are military uniforms and kits.

Members of the public were urged to continue to support the Nigerian military troops with credible informations that will lead to stemming the tide of insecurity across the country.

Onyema Nwachukwu, Brigadier General, Director Army Public Relations announced this.
