Customs intercepts ammunition, marijuana in Rivers


The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Port Harcourt Court Area 11 Command, on Friday, handed two suspects, a pistol, and 9mm ammunition to the Nigeria Police.

The command also said it generated over N246 billion between January and October.

The Command’s Comptroller, Baba Imam, made this known while addressing newsmen and making the declaration of the seizures at the command’s corporate office, Onne, Rivers.

He, however, attributed his achievements to the renewed mindset engendered through training and retraining of officers as well as adequate provision of logistics and incentives to the service.

He stated that nine containers with a duty-paid value of over N1.16 billion were also confiscated by officers of the area command.

“The following goods were seized in 9 containers for contravening import prohibition laws: 724 bales of used clothing, 1,805 pieces of used tyres, four vehicles used in concealing 76.9kg special cannabis (marijuana), 2,070 cartons of tomato paste, among others.”
