This is contained in a statement by the spokesman for the service, Saidu Nuradeen, on Tuesday, in Kano.

He said that personnel of the service intercepted the vehicles transporting a significant quantity of food items intended for illegal export along the Hadejia – Taura – Ringim axis in Jigawa.

Nuradeen listed the items to include 1,505 cartons of big and small-size dried fish, 17 bags of local variety rice, and two bags of beans.

According to him, the seizure underscores the relentless effort of the service to enforce the border closure policy aimed at safeguarding the nation’s economy and ensuring food security.

“Smuggling undermines legitimate trade channels, poses risks to public health, and deprives the government of much-needed revenue.

“The NCS reiterates its unwavering commitment to combat smuggling activities across all entry points into the country,” the statement added.
