Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has arrested 15 suspected smugglers and seized 1,345 bags of foreign rice and 300 bags of assorted grains along Mubi/Yola road, Adamawa State, during a routine patrol.
The Customs Comptroller for Adamawa and Taraba states, Mr. Kamardeem Olumoh, warned that “there is no escape route again for smugglers” in the two states under his control.
He said this while conducting journalists round a warehouse where foreign rice is re-bagged in local bags to beat security operatives.
Olumoh said that NCS had taken over the warehouse and arrested the manager with other staff.
