Hinted that customs is taking the fight against smuggling to the doorsteps of the smugglers to the real source of these goods, which include the waterways and the creeks as part of effort to ensure that smuggling is reduced to the barest minimum.

However, he advised that smugglers should desist from their nefarious activities and engage in legitimate trade and business because the environment has been made for them to thrive in their legitimate businesses and shun things that are illegal.

He said: “It is only the Strike Force team doing up and down in ensuring that rice and other items are not smuggling into the country.

The Federal Operation Unit and Area Commands, we are collaborating to ensure that there is seamless synergy in our operations to make sure that all nooks and crannies of this country conned in terms of patrol.

“And then we can’t do it alone, we need the assistance of general public to come to our aid by giving us credible information so that we track these smugglers and their sponsors so that these things are brought to book.”
