Operatives of the Nigerian Army Special Forces on Tuesday night, raided a warehouse stuffed with sophisticated military hardware at Gaya road of Bompai in Kano city.

The special troops were said to have stormed the Bungalow, after arresting the occupant of the house, where the large cache of arms and ammunition were discovered beneath the sitting room and in some wardrobes in the house.

An official of the security told journalists under the condition of anonymity that the discreet operation was carried out, following a tip-off by a suspect who is under investigations.

Security sources revealed that the warehouse belongs to a foreigner from the Middle East, which is located at Bompai, few metres away from the state police headquarters and the headquarters of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS).

It was revealed that  highly sophisticated military hardware that include about 40 Air to surface Missiles, 50 bombs, 200 Rocket Propeller Launchers, eight AK-47 riffles, 200 military hand grenades, uncountable numbers of live ammunition and some military hardware.

The discovered weapons  were taken to the headquarters of the military in Bukavu Barracks and two other nationals of the Middle East have been arrested in connection with the startling discovery of the military hardware.

The spokesman of the Joint military Task Force (JTF), Captain Ikedichi Iweha, neither denied nor confirmed the shocking discovery but pleaded understanding, stressing that: “We are going to issue a statement.”
