The questions over the discovery of weapons in Nigeria are yet to be answered. Unofficial reports said the weapons originated from Iran and were directed to Hamas in the Gaza Strip. However, Iran's embassy in Nigeria sid it won't elaborate on the military-grade weaponry seized in by Nigerian port authorities. A statement released Monday conveyed that "any unnecessary word would add to the confusion already existing." The embassy also said no Iranian had been arrested over the weapons seizure, the AP reported.
Nigerian security agents found the shipment contained 107 mm artillery rockets and other weapons.
