(The other two went to Malta (Aisling) and Libya (Aoife) ) However, apparently Nigerian law states that if the equipment had been for military use, armed or unarmed, it required import approval which was not sought.

It pulled into Lagos and was impounded upon arrival and, as impounded military equipment (albeit really large) was confiscated by the government.

Slight correction, Aisling went to Libya (via Netherlands (and UAE) in breach of embargo (and at multiples of the price the Dutch paid).

Aoife went to Malta
