The Federal government has summoned the Turkish Ambassador to Nigeria, Hakan Çakıl over massive illegal shipment of arms from his country to Nigeria.
The meeting expected to hold today will have Nigeria express dissatisfaction over the situation and also demand immediate action to curb the menace.
Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs, Hameed Ali said the service was collaborating with the Directorate of State Service and the National Intelligence Agency to tackle the increase in importation of illegal firearms.
Ali, disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari discussed the matter with the President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdoan, at the on-going United Nations General Assembly in New York.
It would be recalled that operatives of the Tin-Can Island Command on Wednesday apprehended another container containing guns, less than two weeks after similar discovery.
