The Nigeria Customs Service TinCan Island Command has stated that its operatives at the five-star logistics terminal while on routine examination on the 28th day of August 2021, stumbled on a pistol with its magazine inside a Toyota camry car at the exit point.
However, following standard operating procedure(SOP),the Command invited the DSS, police and other security Agencies to the scene.
Thereafter the exhibit was taken to the customs Enforcement unit for safe custody pending a formal report to customs headquarters on Monday for further directives.
Consequently, the TinCan Customs Command “is using this opportunity to once again advise importers and or their agents to desist from getting involved with such offensive imports particularly items like this on the list of absolute prohition in view of the dire consequence.”
In view of the foregoing, the customs area controller, Comptroller, Musa Abdullahi has directed immediate investigation into the incident to unravel those behind it and ensure a truncation of their supply chain.
