The Nigerian Customs Service has arrested a Nigerien transporting military camouflage and foreign tactical camouflage to a yet-to-be-identified person in Nigeria.

The suspect was arrested during a stop-and-search operation while driving a Volkswagen Golf along the Jibia-Katsina Highway on April 25 at around 11:30am.

Comptroller Musa Ibrahim Jalo of the Federal Operations Unit (FOU) Zone B disclosed this at a news conference on the zone’s activities from March to April in Kaduna on Thursday.

‘’The patrol officers noticed a sack in the vehicle during the operation and later discovered various military-camouflaged shirts, trousers, and t-shirts after opening it,’’ the Comptroller said.

“After further investigation and questioning, the driver was identified as a Nigerien citizen, and the suspected uniforms were to be delivered to an unknown person in Katsina.
