In a bid to reduce the menace of smuggling and illegal importation of goods into the country the Nigeria Customs Service, (NCS) Federal Operations Unit Owerri Imo State has seized contraband goods with duty paid value (dpv) of 172 million naira.

While displaying the seized items at the Abia/Imo Command Headquarters of the Federal Operations Unit Zone C, the Area Comptroller in the Zone, Mohammed Garba said the Nigerian Customs Service will continue to beam her touch light on smugglers until the battle against smuggling is won.

Comptroller Mohammed however expressed regret that smugglers and their partners in crime have stubbornly refused to desist from this obnoxious business, resulting in huge loss of revenue to the federal government despite government stiff penalties against culprits.
