ABUJA, Nigeria (AP) – Iran’s embassy in Nigeria says it won’t elaborate on military-grade weaponry seized in Nigeria’s busiest port and linked to Iran.

A statement released Monday says that “any unnecessary word would add to the confusion already existing.” The embassy also said no Iranian had been arrested over the weapons seizure.

Nigerian security agents seized the weapons shipment Tuesday, hidden inside 13 shipping containers supposedly containing building materials. Instead, officials say the shipment contained 107 mm artillery rockets and other weapons.

The shipper says the arms came from Iran. Israeli officials claim the weapons were heading to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. Hamas has denied the claim.
