The Nigerian Armoured Vehicle Company No One Told You About

Nigeria is largely regarded as a consuming nation that produces nothing but consumes everything. However, did you know that there is a Nigerian company that manufactures armoured vehicles?

The company produces and exports armoured products for diplomatic communities, corporate bodies, government agencies and the private sector. They have produced machines that fit international and military standards.


The CEO of the company, Ade Ogundeyin, said in an interview,

“We have been able to export our services to other governments such as Rwanda, Central African Republic and South Sudan. Our vehicles are of international standard, and we have a wide range of armored vehicles. One of our strengths is our partnership with experts all over the world in Israel, South Africa and the US.”

Ogundeyin continued,

“We have recently signed an MoU with the Defence Industries Corporation of Nigeria to start producing fighter jets, warships, drones, armored aerial vehicles and mine-resistant ambush personnel carriers. We started with mine-resistant ambush protected (MRAP) vehicles, which have a gross vehicle weight of 19 tons each. In the area of ammunitions, we partner with companies from South Africa to assemble those ones in Nigeria, too.”
