The Zone B of the Nigeria Customs Service, Kaduna, has intercepted smuggled items valued at over N1.4 billion from January to August, its Controller, Aminu Dahiru, has said.

Dahiru said in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Minna, that a total of 1,357 items were seized during the period.

He listed some of the seized items to include second hand vehicles and clothes, trucks load of rice, vegetable oil, tin tomatoes, illicit drugs, mosquito coil, tyres, furniture and drones among others.

The controller stressed that the command would continue to mount surveillance and adopt measures to make smuggling impossible in the area.

“We have declared war against smuggling and have deployed competent officers to man all identified illegal routes used by smugglers to bring in unwholesome goods into the country.

“We have taken concrete measures to stop illegal importation of banned goods in order to contribute our quota in the promotion of Made-in-Nigerian goods,” he said.

Dahiru said that the zone has streamlined its mode of operations and equip its men to operate optimally.

He therefore called for support of stakeholders and traditional rulers in mobilising border communities to support the service in protecting the economy of the country. (NAN)

Latest News Fake eye surgeon in police net Ben Dunno, Warri The Police at the Warri Area Command in Delta State has commenced investigations into the activities of an auxiliary nurse at the Central hospital, one Mrs Abanum Chidi, who had been operating as an eye surgeon on unsuspecting members of the public. Investigations carried out by Our Correspondent revealed that the suspect usually engaged as theatre assistance to qualified eye surgeons carrying out major operations at the hospital, sometimes impersonates as surgeon to also operate on patients when the doctors are not around. Her cover was reportedly blown recently when she operated on the eye of a patient who happens to be the husband of a Magistrate in Warri which later resulted in further complications currently threaten to cause blindness. The matter which was being reported at the ‘B Division’ Okumagba Avenue in Warri, prompted police investigations which revealed that the suspect had been involved in carrying operation on patients under the pretense that she was a qualified surgeon. Confirming this in a telephone conversation with our Correspondent, the Delta state Police Command Public Relations Officer (PPRO) DSP Andrew Aniamaka, said the police had commenced investigations into the case. According to him, “Yes a nurse by name Mrs. Abanum Chidi, of central hospital Warri, who is not even a surgeon, clandestinely used the operations room of the hospital and operated on the eye of one Mr Gift Aruokpere, of 150 Airport road, Warri on May 2018, and it resulted in serious complications”. “While our men at the ‘B division’ police station, Okumagba Avenue have commenced investigation into the matter, we want to assure the members of the public that the Command is alive to its responsibility in ensuring adequate protection of lives and property of innocent citizens”. *Pls use Nigeria police operatives World Cup: Saraki, others to watch Super Eagles against Iceland in Volgograd Saudi warns sick and old people against Hajj pilgrimage Most Nigerian cities to experience rains, thunderstorms on Friday – NiMet BREAKING: Croatia crush Argentina 3-0 to reach 2018 World Cup knockout stage The criminals in police uniform Witness to history DSS nabs 2 suspected Islamic State commanders in Abuja 2018 Budget: SERAP recommends ICC prosecution of lawmakers over cutting of critical projects Windstorm, Fire Disaster: Buhari weeps in Bauchi nPDP members to attend APC Convention: Baraje 2018 budget: FG to borrow N1.6tn to fund deficit
