Abue explained that the container with registration number PONU 210024/1, was picked up based on intelligence report, adding that investigations were ongoing to unmask the importer.

According to him, the pump-action rifles were manufactured in the United States of America and Italy.

He said, “They are pump-action rifles of various designs and also the single-barrelled devices that you are familiar with.

“We discovered that they used POP to conceal the importation. We have arrested one defendant but due to security reasons, we don’t want to make it public for now because such information could hamper investigations which are still ongoing.”

According to Abue, the nation had been saved from another round of problem that the rifles would have caused.

The PRO of the command, Uche Eiesieme, in a statement issued after the press briefing, listed the rifles seized as 100 pieces of Black Tornado single-barrelled rifles, 75 pieces of Silver Magnum single-barrelled rifles, 50 pieces of Altar pump-action rifles, 215 pieces of Black single-barrelled rifles, among other accessories.

The development is coming after a similar seizure of  661 pump-action rifles early in the year by the NCS, Federal Operations Unit, Zone ‘A’, Ikeja, along the Mile Two-Apapa Road in Lagos.

The rifles, according to the Comptroller-General of the NCS, were imported from Turkey and routed through the Apapa port.
