A large shipment of weapons has been seized by Nigeria’s State Security Service at the port in Lagos city.
The secret police say they intercepted 13 containers, some of which had rocket launchers and grenades and other explosives hidden under tiles.
The authorities have said they cannot say who owned the containers or their intended destination.
But correspondents say the discovery has increased fears of possible violence during next year’s elections.
…Only a small part of the arsenal was shown to the media, she says, but it was enough to worry security experts.
They identified the artillery rockets as Norinco rockets – a type used by the Taliban in Afghanistan – suitable for high-intensity warfare.
Nigerian police is worried: were these weapons for the Islamist sect Boko Haram (Western education is sin), about which T&P has also posted in the past?
