The Nigerian Army has intercepted 4,653 rounds of bullets disguised as rice, in Zamfara State.
The incident occurred at about 10a.m on Wednesday, when troops deployed at lMoriki, Zamfara State, received a tip-off on the movement of ammunition and mounted an emergency stop and search checkpoint.
Shortly after, a motor bike arrived carrying a ‘bag of rice.’ The bike man, however, refused to stop for routine checks and the troop had to give a hot chase.
They got the bike impounded while the rider escaped. They later discovered that the bag contained about 4653 rounds of 7.62mm (special).
