Army Intercepts 72 IED Chargers In Cross Rivers

Some explosives have been intercepted by the Nigerian Army, on Wednesday, in Cross River State.

Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, Director of Army Public Relations, in a statement on Wednesday, said after a careful search of the vehicle, it was revealed that it conveyed 72 Improvised Explosive Device chargers, 121 Dynamite Liquid, 200 rounds of 7.62 mm (NATO) and 82 rounds of 7.62 mm (Special) ammunition.

According to him, other items recovered in the intercepted vehicle are military uniforms and kits.

He said troops of 13 Brigade operating under command of 82 Division Nigerian Army on Tuesday 21 June 2022, intercepted a Toyota Camry car with registration number JAL 492 AA, laden with assorted ammunition while enroute Utanga village towards Obudu Mountains in Cross River State.

He said the driver’s recalcitrance compelled the troops to open fire on the tyres of the vehicle, thereby immobilizing it.

The statement urged members of the public to continue to support troops with credible information that will lead to stemming the tide of insecurity across the country.
