Customs intercepts container loaded with ammunition in Lagos

The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Tin Can Island command, on Saturday, intercepted a container suspected to be laden with arms and ammunition.

The Public Relations Officer of the command, Mr.Uche Ejesieme, confirmed the interception to NAN.

According to Ejesieme, the container was intercepted on Friday in one of the port’s terminals during routine examination.

Following this development, the command intimated the terminal operators and requested that the suspected container be transferred to our enforcement unit for 100 per cent examination.

This suffices that the information is still sketchy but we do hope that comprehensive information will be made available after the 100 per cent examination.

Following, we will communicate officially to the customs management as well our zonal coordinator in line with service protocol,” Ejesieme said.

Ejesieme, therefore, seeked for calm as the command tries to get critical information on which a report on the incident would be based.
