The Nigeria Customs Service’s Kano / Jigawa Command said it had arrested 15 people and confiscated N80 million duty-paid-value contraband products.
This was disclosed by the Command’s Comptroller, Ahmad Nasir, while displaying the products confiscated in front of newsmen in Kano on Tuesday.

Nasir said the capture and detention took place in separate routes leading to the state during the last two months, adding that the suspects were given administrative bails while the objects were being forfeited.

For his men and officers, he named Babura area in Jigawa State as the most notorious road, where he often battled the smugglers.

Though drawing people from the region to leave the smuggling activities as according to him he would write to Governor Badaru Abubakar to intervene in the matter.

“Today (Tuesday), we seized four trucks of 1,842 bags of expired fertilizer, 567 Jerricans of 25 litres of Vegetable oil and 53 bales of Second-hand clothes.

“Other seized items include 1,608 bags of rice (50kg), 113 bags of foreign sugar (50kg), 278 compressed blocks of Indian hemp and 20 units of used vehicles and means of conveyance with a total DPV of N79.5 million,” he said.

The expired fertilizer, he said, is typically sold to innocent farmers. It’s not good for our soil and the food we consume is not ideal for that. Yet it also circulates throughout the country through smugglers. Anything that kills our soil will ruin our economy.

He commended the DSS, Police, and other sister security organizations for their assistance in collecting, exchanging, and collaborating information.
