Officials of the Nigerian Army Department of Military Intelligence have arrested a man, caught in possession of two highly weaponised drones.
Reports say that the suspicious package was concealed in cartons, and was intercepted on January 28, 2020 at about 5:00pm.
While being questioned, at the National Air Defense Corps in Ikeja, the suspect allegedly said that he is working with the Kaduna State Government.
Kaduna State’s Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan however was said to have denied the involvement of the state government in the importation of the drones when he contacted.
The importer, simply identified as Kelechi who testified that he is involved in the procurement of the drones, however, refused to comment on it.
He also said the relevant body behind the importation will speak at the right time.
He said; “It is confidential. At the appropriate time, the appropriate body will speak on this. That is all I have to say.”
