EZUGWU MRAPs produced by the Defence Industries Corporation of Nigeria and Command Engineering Depot (DICON-CED) can withstand small arms fire and a 7kg TNT explosion. Each of its wheels can withstand a 12kg TNT explosion. The Mine-Resistant, Ambush-Protected (MRAP) vehicles have a 12.7 mm Anti-Aircraft Gun and a 7.62 mm Light Machine Gun. These armaments are enough to finish up the remaining deadly Boko Haram insurgents.

The all-terrain all-wheel-drive vehicle has an independent suspension system that allows it to move through smooth and rough terrain. Ezugwu armored vehicles will carry a crew of 12, including a commander, driver, two gunners, and eight soldiers. Powering this locally made mobile bunker is a Chinese-sourced WD615 turbo diesel engine.
