Customs Generated N98M In May; Confiscated 414 Sacks of donkey Meats

This was disclosed on Wednesday by the customs area controller of the command, Ben Oramalugo while handing over confiscated donkey meat and skins to the Nigeria Agricultural Quarantine Services (NAQS) in Birnin Kebbi, NAN reports.


“As part of our activities to fight smuggling activities and boost our monthly generated revenue, the command has generated N98.2 million in the month of May, representing 111 per cent of the command’s monthly revenue target in the state,” stated Mr Oramalugo.

He added, “We have also handed over, to NAQS, 414 sacks of donkey meat and skins seized by the command in the spirit of interagency cooperation. If you could recall, the process of seizure started from the Maje border and ended in the Kamba axis in May in the state.”

“This is so upon smuggling them into the country or importing without payment of duty, irrespective of whether the items are allowed to be imported or outright contraband,” the customs official explained.

He added, “Same is also applicable to the items intercepted by customs about to be smuggled out of the country. Section 63 of CEMA is unequivocal about the exportation of items without following the laid down procedure of approved exports.”
