Police Recover Rocket Launchers, 36 AK-47 Rifles

Security agents on Monday recovered two rocket launchers, 36 AK-47 rifles and 40,000 live ammunition in Ajangbadi area of Lagos State. Investigations showed that the Special Anti-Robbery Squad made the seizure at a warehouse. A top security agent told our correspondent said the SARS, acting on a tip-off, swooped on the warehouse around 5am. The source said the warehouse was used in storing assorted food items. He said the arms and ammunition might have been brought into the country either by a terrorist group or a robbery gang. The source said, “The security agents are still investigating the matter. They are working on two theories: One that they were imported by a theorist group or robbers, who want to launch robbery attacks during festive season. The latter is more plausible.” Our correspondents learnt that the security agents were on the trail on the importers of the items. Another police officer at SARS told our correspondent on the telephone that the weapons were owned by some of the armed robbers who carried out attacks in Lagos on September 9. “We have reason to believe that it was the robbers who terrorized Lagos two Sundays ago. The ammunition will be displayed before journalists,” he said. The Police Public Relations Officer, Ngozi Braide, however said she was unaware of the recovery of the weapons
