Illegal firearms: Customs Intensify Patrol On Lagos, Ogun border areas - disnaija.com

Categories: Nigeria News

The Nigerian Customs Service said it has intensified patrol on all discovered illegal routes in Lagos and Ogun states to check smuggling of firearms into the country.

The Public Relations Officer of Zone A Federal Operations Unit (FOU) of the Service, Ikeja, Mr. Uche Ejesieme, said this on Saturday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.

Ejesieme said that the Comptroller-General of Customs was worried over the proliferation of firearms in the country, therefore gave a matching order to all comptrollers to intensify patrols at all routes.

“When the new Zonal Comptroller, Mr. Nuhu Mohammed, took over the leadership in about a month ago, he directed that we should intensify our patrols around all illegal routes in the zone.

“We have identified some flash points where we have intensified patrols so that unwanted goods such as illegal arms do not find their ways in whatever guise into the country.

“Some of the unapproved routes found in Ogun axis have been blocked by our patrols. We have been motivated by the Customs authorities to do a good job.

“We have more patrol vehicles and equipment to fight smugglers. We have good welfare for our men,’’ Ejesieme said.
