Customs Arrests Smugglers Disguised As Mourners

LOL - The Seme Area Command of the Nigeria Customs Service has announced the arrest of two men , Taofiq Oyewale and Segun Oyinola, who allegedly disguised a smuggled L 450 Jeep with posters of a dead person as though they were on a burial procession.




While announcing the arrest in a statement on Tuesday , the Public Relations Officer of the command, Taupyen Selchang, said that this was a new strategy adopted by the smugglers to evade the operatives of the NCS.


Selchang said that smugglers also used waste disposal truck as tool of disguise , adding that men of the command examined a waste disposal truck and found 534 pieces of used tyres. He said the two suspects arrested in connection with the crime were undergoing interrogation and prosecution by the legal department of the service.


The statement quoted the Area Controller, Seme Command, NCS, Mohammed Aliyu, as saying that no amount of antics devised by smugglers would go undetected by the officers.


Aliyu warned smugglers who would not desist from using the Seme route would continue to count their losses behind bars when arrested and prosecuted to serve as deterrent to others.
