Another container filled with arms has been discovered at the Tin Can Island Port in Lagos, the Nigeria Customs told PREMIUM TIMES Tuesday.

The spokesperson of the Nigeria Customs, Tin Can Island Command, Uche Ejesieme, confirmed the incident and said details would be made public later.

“We are still counting,” Mr. Ejesieme told PREMIUM TIMES over the phone.

A source at the port told PREMIUM TIMES that everyone had been ordered out of the terminal.

“As I speak to you, they’ve ordered everyone to go out of the terminal and they have locked up everywhere,” the source said.

Details later….
