Acting Controller of the Federal Operations  Unit (F.O.U.), Zone ‘A’ of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Usman Turaki, has said the command made 336 seizures of various goods and items valued at N117 million within the first 30 days of his assumption of office as head of the anti-smuggling command.
According to him, the Customs anti- smuggling commands recorded N4.3 million contraband on daily average and the feat, which covered the period between July 13, when he assumed office and August 9, was thus exclusive of another breakthrough recorded when his officers and men, based on intelligence-enhanced tip-off, intercepted seven trucks of Jumbo bales of suspected textile materials from a warehouse around Oshodi.
Shedding more lights on the 30-day seizure, he said the goods had a payable duty of N42.94 million with a duty paid value of N150.45 million. Turaki urged smugglers to take to honest jobs or “relocate to other parts of the country where they might find things easier”.
