Customs intercepts four trucks of food items in Kano.

As part of their efforts to combat smuggling, the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Kano Area Command, has reportedly seized four trucks carrying food products.

This was said in a statement made by Saidu Nuradeen, the Service Spokesman, in Kano on Tuesday.

Along the Hadejia-Taura-Ringim corridor in Jigawa, he added, service officials had stopped cars laden with food products destined for illegal export.

The goods were listed by Nuradeen as follows: 1,505 cartons of dried fish (both large and little), 17 bags of local type rice, and 2 bags of beans.

He claims that the seizure demonstrates the Service’s dogged determination to implement the border closure policy, which is meant to protect the economy and guarantee food security.

The government loses money it needs, public health is endangered, and legitimate commerce channels are undermined by smuggling.

The National Counter-Smuggling Strategy (NCS) is resolute in its mission to eradicate smuggling at all points of entry into the nation.

In a statement, Nuradeen reaffirmed its resolve to combat smuggling and other illegal actions in order to safeguard local businesses and improve food security, while also calling on the public to help by providing reliable information.

At the same time, IQ Ibudu, the Assistant Comptroller General of Customs and Zonal Coordinator for Zone B

ECOWAS has issued a statement urging the Maigatari border community to be alert and comply with the land border closure.

She noted that in response to the country’s social and economic problems, the administration had taken constructive steps.

Community members living near the border were also urged by Dauda Ibrahim Chana, Controller of the Kano/Jigawa Area Command, to work together with the Service and other security organisations to protect border posts.

He reassured them that the agency will do its best to meet their requirements, particularly in the area of community relations.
