Smuggling: Customs Confiscate poultry products in Lagos

The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has stated that its Command in Western Marine, Lagos, has seized 6,500 smuggled poultry products between 20th to 24th of September.

Comptroller, Nigeria Customs Service, Boyilila Binga made this disclosure while speaking to newsmen on Thursday in Lagos.

The Comptroller who said the smuggled poultry products were seized in Ebeche and Badagry area of Lagos state, added that the seizures were owed to a combination of the command’s intelligence and enforcement capacity.

According to him, the NCS had to come up with an advanced means to get the smugglers and also renew efforts to give smugglers a run for their money.

Binga said it was very clear that with the closure of the border, the next option would be creeks, adding that the officers would be watching closely and keep charging until the smugglers retreat.

He said that easy accessibility of operational tools and personnel motivation will prompt rapid response in the officers whenever any alert is raised.

The community relationship between the officers and villages along the coast has been of benefit to the success and it has come to stay, he added.
