Custom operatives have arrested a Nigerian transporting military camouflage and foreign tactical camouflage to a yet-to-be-identified person in Nigeria.

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

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

Jalo said 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.
