The soldiers intercepted the assorted munitions while the car was enroute Utanga village towards Obudu Mountains in the State on 21 June 2022.

This was contained in a statement signed by the army director of public relations, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu.

“Troops deployed at Forward Operating Base Amana attempted to stop the vehicle at their checkpoint but the driver evaded the checking and zoomed off. The drivers’ recalcitrance compelled the troops to open fire on the tyres of the vehicle, thereby immobilizing it.

“”A thorough search conducted on the vehicle revealed it was conveying 72 Improvised Explosive Device chargers, 121 Dynamite Liquid, 200 rounds of 7.62 mm (NATO) and 82 rounds of 7.62 mm (Special) ammunition.
“Other items recovered in the intercepted vehicle are military uniforms and kits.”
