Acting Controller of the unit, Usman Yahaya, who confirmed this at the weekend, said the seizures were made in two separate operations within one week.

Yahaya told journalists in Lagos through a public statement issued by the Unit Public Relations Officer, Jerry Attah, at the weekend that his men have sustained round the clock patrols while keeping at safe distance rules in line with COVID-19 prevention techniques.

He added that the seizures came in 2,154 cartons laden in seven different vehicles of different capacities.

According to Yahaya, “These seizures, which we made within a week is a strong message to smugglers and trans-border criminals. They should not be deceived into concluding that we are away from our duty posts."
