Customs intercept N19.6m sex enhancement drugs in Sokoto

The Nigerian Customs Service (NSC) joint border patrol team, Sector 4 has seized a consignment of sex enhancement drugs with the duty paid value of N19.6m in Sokoto State.

The Coordinating Comptroller, Kolapo Oladeji, who made this known while briefing newsmen on Thursday, February 15, 2024, said the drugs were intercepted at the Kajiji area along Sokoto-Jega Road following an intelligent report.

“These drugs are very dangerous to the health of our people. Some of them even carried fake NAFDAC registration and expiring dates,” he said.

He also disclosed that his team intercepted trucks of food items heading to Niger Republic through the Kebbi border.

“We will leave no stone unturned to block food smuggling out of the country because of the current situation in the country. We all know that prices of food items have skyrocketed because of the unpatriotic acts of some Nigerians,” Oladeji said.

“Our people are hungry but they prefer to take the food to other countries despite the border closures imposed by ECOWAS.

“We will continue to trail them and block their routes. And whoever is caught in this nefarious act will face the full wrath of the law,” he added.

The agency also intercepted 60 jerry cans of petrol along Illela border which were auctioned to the public.
