Nigeria Customs intercepts gallons of petrol hidden inside coffins


The joint anti-bunkering team of the Nigeria Customs Service on Wednesday intercepted 23 jerry cans of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) at Idiroko border, concealed in two caskets. .

Abdullahi Maiwada, Customs Spokesman in the area, said that the fuel lading coffins were abandoned in a Mazda 626 with Lagos registration number LSD 617 CW. .

“In continuation of the fight against smuggling, a customs joint special taskforce of Ogun I Command, Federal Operation Unit Zone “A” and CGC’s Strike Force intercepted 13 jerry cans of 25 litres and six jerry cans of 10 litres of PMS concealed clandestinely in two caskets. .
.
The said items were conveyed by a daredevil smuggler with the intention of smuggling the items across the border to a neighbouring country in a Mazda 626 with Lagos registration number LSD 617 CW. .
.
To this end, the command wishes to reiterate its stand that there is no retreat on the fight against smuggling in whatever disguise,” he said.
