Those of you who say "Jack, what happened to @YeleSowore will happen to you..." This is for you.

2016 I "illegally" brought drones and accessories worth about N10 million into the country...They were confiscated by customs at the Airport.

Why?

#aThread
A month before, the National Security Adviser Babagana Monguno issued an order to all corresponding agencies to seize UAV's brought into Nigeria by "unauthorised persons" at ports of entries and borders.
Reason given is that Boko Haram insurgents were using drones to facilitate their ambush on our Armed Forces.
This was not published anywhere, I argued this matter up to his office. There was nothing I didn't do. I even took it up to Aso Rock.
