Seme Customs Intercepts Illegal Goods Worth N54.46 Mln
The Nigerian Customs Service, NCS is leaving no stones unturned to ensure that Nigeria is rid of illegally imported goods.
The Customs Area Controller, Comptroller Mohammed Aliyu, made this known on Thursday in Lagos.
Aliyu said the seized items include: 3,200 bags of rice and 1,000 cartons of frozen poultry products.
720 jerry cans of vegetable oil and 57 bales of second-hand clothes (okirika) were also confiscated by his officers.
He said that the command is deploying all necessary tools to ensure that the core mandate of the service (revenue generation, facilitation of legitimate trade and suppression of smuggling) are achieved.
“This is because actualising the functions of revenue generation and legitimate trade facilitation depend solely on how smuggling activities are aggressively suppressed to the barest minimum.
“It is against this backdrop that the anti-smuggling unit of the command intensified its operations in order to curb the menace of trans-border crimes (smuggling) and other vices,” Aliyu said.
