Nigeria reports seized Iranian arms shipment to UN

Nigeria has reported its seizure of a shipment of arms from Iran to the United Nations Security Council.

The Nigerian authorities discovered the weapons, including rocket launchers and grenades, last month in containers labelled as building materials.

The France-based shipping company CMA CGM which transported the shipment said it was hidden in containers labelled as building materials and attempts were made to send it to Gambia before the Nigerian police seized it.

Of course, if CMA CGM wasn’t doing business with the ayatollahs in the first place, they could be certain that the Iranians weren’t smuggling arms through their services, couldn’t they?
