It appears the war on terrorism is far from over, as the joint security operatives, made up of the Nigerian Customs, DSS, Army etc, intercepted six Mine Resistant Military Vehicles, in Konkol, a borderline village in Maiha Local Government Area of Adamawa State, between Nigeria and Cameroon.

A Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle, is a US made military light tactical vehicles produced as part of the MRAP program, which are specifically designed to withstand improvised explosive device (IED) attacks and ambushes.

What s not clear is if the vehicles were exiting or coming into the country at the time it was intercepted, and the identity of those inside the military hardware was also not disclosed.

But, a source within the Nigeria Customs who spoke anonymously to the media said, “Yes there was intercept of six military mine equipment by our area command office in Yola, but you know I cannot be quoted for want of authority. It was a joint operation, involving, our officers, the DSS, army and other operatives,” he said.

All other efforts to get more details from the security agents failed, however, another source disclosed that the Military High Command in Abuja has started an investigation about it and that the equipment is currently at the Customs Area Command in Yola.
