Customs: donkeys, motorcycles used to smuggle in arms

BY DEJI OGUNSOLA

Comptroller-General of Nigeria Customs Service Hameed Ali, HAS disclosed that Donkeys and motorcycles are used to smuggle arms and ammunition into the country with the active collaboration of border communities.

The Comptroller-General who appeared before the House of Representatives Committee on Customs and Excise, said it was worrisome that Nigerians living in border communities were unaware of smuggling as an illegal business.

He added that the NCS was working on a policy to reduce the years on imported vehicles to ensure that Nigeria is not turned to a dumping ground for rickety automobiles.
