Men of Nigeria Customs Service, Ogun Area 1 Command had intercepted fake currency notes worth N2.5 million at Ihunbo security checkpoint along with Idiroko border town in Ogun State.
Also intercepted by the command were 40 drums of smuggled ethanol.
The command’s Controller, Michael  Agbara, told newsmen that the fake currency was intercepted due to the vigilance of officers of the command.
According to the Command spokesman, Abdullahi Maiwada, the fake currency was found in possession of Samson Odebija, who on interrogation said, he was given the money by one Alfa to transport it from Idiroko to Owode-Yewa with a promise of N5,000.
The item, Maiwada said was strictly stamped by NAFDAC for industrial use, stressing that investigation revealed that some unscrupulous elements engaged in the distribution of the product to Idiroko community, who ignorantly dilute it with water and take it as an alcoholic drink. In the same vein, the Command Anti-Bunkering Team ‘A’ while on information patrol discovered a smuggling hideout at Iko-Gate along Idiroko road, leading to seizure of 160 jerry cans (25 litres each) of Premium Motor Spirit popularly known as petrol.
