The Nigeria Customs Service Western Marine Command has made double seizures of poultry products in the last week.

Not relenting in their efforts to combat smuggling the officers of the Command also made seizures of frozen products comprising 173 cartons of poultry in its area of operations.
In his words Mr. Arisekola said:
“We are not relenting too as a Command but because of harmonized code of operations of arrest, detain and prosecute it (the products) was handed over to us by Nigeria Navy.
