The Nigerian Customs Western Marine Command has intercepted several bags of foreign parboiled rice, bales of clothing and cartons of poultry in the Ilufe and Ijofin axis of Lagos and Ogun states.
The seizures were made at two different places using sophisticated information-sharing modes by members of the joint patrol team of the Command.
Prior to the siezure the patrol team had gathered intelligence report from formidable sources and laid ambush for the perpetrators.
According to the Customs Area Comptroller of the Command Compt. Sarkin Kebbi who led a delegation of sister agencies comprising National Agency for Food Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), the Nigerian Police Force and the State Security Service (SSS) he said:
"We had information two days prior to their (smugglers) reaching the coast that they were on their way. We laid ambush for them. We allowed them to offlaod after the process we pounced on them but they dived into the water and fled.
