France have owned-up owning the arms in a detained Antonov jet. However there are conflicting reports bringing about reason for suspicion.
The flight has clearly been reported to have been transporting AK47s and bullet proof vests among other arms as well as two helicopters.
But as France made that admission of ownership and as Boko Haram linked ex-governor of Borno, Ali Modu Sheriff made a secret visit to the craft, suddenly Nigeria is claiming that there were no arms being illegally couriered in the plane.
Checks were made because of the aircraft’s nationality and the nature of the cargo and the French Embassy in Abuja supplied information, he said in an emailed statement.
“The Nigerian federal and airport authorities, being satisfied with the documents and the genuine character of the flight, have announced that the plane will be authorised to pursue its flight to N’Djamena,” he added.
“Contrary to some press reports, there was absolutely no weapon and no ammunition on board the aircraft.”
Images below are from the plane and were taken of boxes containing the arms being smuggled possibly for terror in Nigeria cia Chad. How can new reports suddenly claim there were no arms in the plane, only ” repair materials.”
Once again Nigerians are being fed to the dogs.
