A major drug bust has been carried out by the Tincan Island Command of the Nigerian Customs Service, intercepting a container of Cannabis Sativa imported from Canada. The haul, valued at over ₦3 billion, highlights the ongoing efforts of the customs service to combat drug trafficking.

Comptroller General of Customs, Wale Adeniyi, announced the seizure, noting the substantial value of the intercepted illicit drug. In addition to the cannabis, customs operatives also confiscated several cartons of cough syrup, further underscoring the diverse nature of smuggled goods entering the country.

This significant interception comes shortly after the service reported the seizure of smuggled Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), commonly known as petrol, worth ₦106 million within a span of seven days. The swift actions of the customs officials reflect their heightened vigilance and commitment to curbing illegal activities at the nation's ports.

"These seizures are part of our ongoing efforts to rid the country of illicit drugs and contraband items," said Adeniyi. "The successful interception of the cannabis shipment is a testament to the dedication and effectiveness of our operatives at Tincan Island Command."

The intercepted cannabis and cough syrup are now in the custody of the Nigerian Customs Service, and investigations are underway to identify and apprehend those involved in the smuggling operations. The customs service is working closely with other law enforcement agencies to ensure that all individuals connected to these illicit activities are brought to justice.

The Tincan Island Command's recent successes have been met with commendation from various quarters, with stakeholders emphasizing the importance of continued vigilance and inter-agency collaboration. The seizures are expected to have a significant impact on the supply chain of illegal drugs and contraband items in the country.

As the Nigerian Customs Service intensifies its operations, the agency has reiterated its commitment to safeguarding the nation's borders and preventing the entry of harmful substances. The public is encouraged to support these efforts by providing information on suspicious activities and cooperating with law enforcement agencies.

Further details on the investigation and subsequent legal actions will be provided as they become available. The Nigerian Customs Service remains steadfast in its mission to protect the country from the dangers of smuggling and ensure the security of its citizens.
