The Special Assignment Team of Federal Operations Unit, Zone ‘A’ intercepted three Mazda Saloon cars loaded with cartridges concealed in sacks of cassava flour.
This occurred while officers of the Nigeria Customs Service were on information patrol on Sunday at about 10pm along Igbora axis of Oyo State.
This is according to a statement released by the Public Relations Officer of the Unit, DSC Theophilus Duniya.
It was reported that the drivers abandoned their vehicles on sighting the official vehicle.
The items discovered during physical examination in the office included 751 pieces of AAA, 70mm live Lion Cartridges, sacks of cassava flour and sacks of parboiled rice.
However, the vehicles including their contents have been deposited at the station for further investigation.
The Acting Customs Comptroller in Charge of the Unit DC Hussein Ejibunu called on all patriotic citizens to provide useful and timely information that would help in combating smuggling.
He said “Smuggling is the mother of all crimes hence the need to team up and fight it to the barest minimum”.
“It is an act of sabotage that should not be allowed to fester for a long time, most especially with the security challenges in the country. Information is key and germane towards the fight against this cankerworm called smuggling” he added.
