By Godwin Oritse
LAGOS — THE Federal Operations Unit, Zone ‘A’ of the Nigeria Customs Service, Monday, intercepted a Peugeot station wagon with unquantified rounds of ammunition along Shaaki-Oyo axis, and arrested a suspected gun runner.

Disclosing this to newsmen in Lagos, Acting Comptroller incharge of anti-smuggling in the Western zone, Mr Victor Dimka, said the suspected gun runner was currently under going interrogation, adding that he will be charged to court.

He said the war against criminals was a collective one and called on members of the public to make information with security implication available to security agencies.

He said: “Anybody not trained will see the vehicle as a taxi, but on further probe, there is a false compartment created by these criminals to bring these ammunition to wreck havoc on Nigerians.

“The danger is that when you have information of this nature and you do not bring it to the notice of the security agencies, you may not know where these bullets could go. The target could you.”
