Items confiscated also comprised 19 cartons of foreign insecticide and 26 bags of 50kg foreign parboiled rice.

Due to the flammability of the PMS, Abdullahi mentioned that most of the product had been appropriately disposed of in accordance with the laws, and the proceeds had been remitted into the Federation Account. The remaining PMS will be auctioned post the briefing.

It was noted that none of the smugglers were apprehended as they managed to flee the scene. However, Abdullahi expressed determination to crack down on all smugglers, emphasizing that the nation cannot afford to be overrun by saboteurs affecting the economy.

The comptroller urged Nigerians, stakeholders, and relevant security agencies at the Command’s frontiers to continue collaborating with the Customs to combat smuggling.
