The Nigeria Customs Services (NCS) has seized contraband goods worth over 500 Million Naira in Kaduna State.
The Contraband goods were seized by the Customs Compliance Team, Northern Axis between December 2015 and April 2016.
The Officer in Charge of the Team, Musa Jalo, said the seized items were smuggled into the country from Niger Republic through the northern borders in the last four months.
He stated that the latest operation is part of the ongoing effort by the service to block the porous borders and help raise the revenue profile of the commands.
He said there would be more seizures to thwart the activities of some unpatriotic elements who want to cripple the economy of the nation through smuggling.
