 The Comptroller General, Zone C, Nigeria Customs,Amajam Bukar, made the revelation during the monthly briefing at the zonal head office in Owerri, Imo State capital.
“Though smugglers keep finding new ways of evading detection, the NCS will keep coming up with ingenious and even better ways of nipping their activities in the bud.

“The evidence of our commitment can be seen in the quality of seizures and high DPV accruable to the Federal Government. Our work here in the zone will continue to yield great benefits and results to the nation as we improve on our operations to increase revenue generation, security of life and property and trade facilitation.”

The unit seized 2,993 bags of rice with DPV of N84,198,400,380; cartons of soap with DPV of N10,093.005.00; Range Rover Jeep Sport 2017 model with DPV N37,077,820 and 4,118 cartons of frozen poultry with DPV N83,389,500, which was destroyed.

Others include Mercedes Benz G65 (AMG) Jeep with DPV of N37,799,998 and a container conveying 10,000 pieces of children’s bags, 303 pieces of suitcase, 15 television sets, 240 pieces of jewellery with a DPV of N111,572,300, among others.
