The goods include a truck carrying 714 cartons of fake drugs, mostly pain relievers without registered NAFDAC number, 4,480 cartons of foreign soap, 596 pieces of used tyres, 1,920 cartons of foreign mosquito coil and 6 new Hilux vans.

While conducting journalists round the seizure at the Abia/Imo Command in Owerri, the Imo State capital, southeast Nigeria, the Area Comptroller of FOU Zone C, Mr. Victor Dimka, said that there would no more be hiding place for smugglers in the zone.

He added that men of the Nigerian Customs Service are better equipped and determined to combat this menace of smuggling that has remained one of the major bane of economic growth.
