British Arms Dealer Charged for Smuggling Guns from China to Nigeria

This man (Gary Hyde) is denying allegations he transported (80,000) thousand guns from China to Nigeria under shady circumstances.

He is being charged because he ignored U.K law concerning such transactions and he is claiming it was a legal transaction between the Nigerian and Chinese government.

Though he is withholding information about his exact location as at the time the transaction took place, under the guise of being too busy.

My concern is this, is he trying to avoid being taxed or did he broker a deal between criminal elements within the Nigerian and Chinese government? This transaction took place in an election year, 2007. Who was the Chief of defence staff in 2007? Who was the chief of army staff in 2007? why were these weapons bought?
