Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has revealed that the six mine-resistant military vehicles intercepted by authorities in Adamawa were bound for Niger Republic.
Customs spokesperson, Joseph Attah, told Premium times on Sunday that the six drivers attached to the vehicles were also held by Nigerian authorities.
The military vehicles were intercepted by men of the Nigerian Army, Nigeria Customs Service and Department of State Services in Konkol, Maiha Local Government Area, Adamawa State.
Konkol is a community on the border between Nigeria and Cameroon.
The heavily fortified equipment were being conveyed without appropriate documentation including their ownership, source and destination, when they were seized.
Defence Headquarters, Abuja, has since launched investigation into the discovery of the military hardware currently at customs area command in Yola.
