Weaponised drone allegedly intercepted at Lagos airport

A man said to be in possession of two highly weaponised drones was reportedly arrested by officials of the Nigerian Army Department of Military Intelligence.

The suspicious package which was concealed in cartons, was intercepted on January 28, 2020 at about 5:00pm.

Upon being interrogated at the National Air Defense Corps in Ikeja, the suspect allegedly revealed he works with the Kaduna State Government.

According to Sahara Reporters, the Commander of NADC, Air commodore U.K Abdullah later received a call from some unknown persons to release the drones and the suspect who was being interrogated, and he did on January 30, 2020. Abdullah also allegedly told military officials under his command to drop further investigation into the case.

Kaduna State’s Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan however reportedly denied the involvement of the state government in importation of the drones when contacted.

 

The importer identified simply as Kelechi did not deny his involvement in procurement of the drones but he 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.”
