The unrelenting efforts of Operatives of the Intelligence Response Unit, IRT, Special Tactical Squad, STS, Police Mobile Force, Counter-Terrorism Unit and the Special Forces attached to Operation Puff Adder, have resulted in the dismantling on 25th May, 2019, of a 4-man international arms-smuggling syndicate. The criminal gang operates between parts of North Africa, the Sahel region, and West African countries.

Investigation revealed that the syndicate specialises in smuggling small arms, light weapons, and ammunition from North Africa, through the Sahel region, and supplies same to their criminal partners, kidnappers, armed robbers, political thugs, and other criminal elements in Nigeria, and other West African countries.
