Daily Post reports that troops of 72 Special Force Brigade, Nigeria Army, Makurdi, have intercepted 73 young men headed to Imo from Nasarawa.

They were being transported inside five trucks with 47 motorcycles when soldiers stopped them at Agan Toll Gate within the Benue capital.

The vehicles also contained sacks of minerals loaded from Plateau State for delivery at a Port Harcourt-based company.

Benue Deputy Governor, Benson Abounu visited the Army barracks on Tuesday. He commended the military personnel for their vigilance and conduct.

Abounu said contrary to speculations and fear of attack, “no arms were found after a thorough search conducted by the soldiers.”

He advised the Army to thoroughly profile the young men to ascertain the actual mission of their trip and possibly fish out those who provide questionable responses.

Lt. Col. AD Alhassan, Commander of 72 Special Forces Brigade disclosed that his men acted on intelligence.

Alhassan confirmed that no weapons were found after the search conducted on the passengers, trucks and motorcycles.
