The Nigeria Custom Service joint border patrol team Sector IV has confiscated a consignment of sex enhancement drugs valued at N19.6 million in Sokoto State.

The Coordinating Comptroller, Mr Kolapo Oladeji, made this disclosure while briefing newsmen in Sokoto, adding that trucks of food items were also intercepted at Kajji community on the Sokoto-Kebbi road.

He further said that the intercepted trucks loaded with food items were heading to Niger Republic though the Kebbi border, an action that contravened regulations.

“We will leave no stone unturned to block food smuggling out of the country because of the current situation in the country.

“We all know that prices of food items have skyrocketed because of the activities of some Nigerians.

“Our people are hungry but they prefer to take the food to other country despite the border closures imposed by Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS),” he said.

Oladeji noted that the NCS operatives also apprehended 60 jerry cans of petroleum products bring smuggled outside the country.

The team leader sought for people’s cooperation and support with intelligent information that would assist officials to stop activities that cripple the nation’s economy and public health.
