In Ogun state, Nigeria Customs apprehends a concealed stash of ammunition worth N500 million inside bags of garri.

The Ogun Area 1 Command of the Nigeria Customs Service discovered 940 rounds of ammunition valued at N557,120,828.00 hidden inside sacks of cassava flakes at the Idiroko area of the state.

During a press briefing on Friday in Idiroko, Ogun, the Area Controller, Ahmadu Shuaibu, reported that the Command’s operatives seized 940 rounds of smuggled ammunition hidden in sacks of garri during an anti-smuggling operation on March 14 along the border line.

“The superior security network of the Command eventually aided the seizure but we lost the suspects, as the items were abandoned by the suspected smugglers who absconded in a bid to evade arrest.

“In addition, the Command also recorded the seizure of 123 sacks and 3,172 parcels of cannabis sativa, hemp; 380 pieces of donkey skin; 304 bales of used clothes; and 910 cartons of frozen poultry products, among others,” he said.
