Kamardeen Olumoh, Comptroller of Customs, Adamawa/Taraba command, paraded the truck to newsmen in Yola on Friday.
"The driver escaped but we are sure that Dangote, being a responsible corporate entity, will identify and apprehend the driver and hand him over to us for prosecution.”
Comptroller Olumoh further disclosed other seizures made by the command, including rice, used clothing and petroleum products with a Duty Paid Value (DPV) of over N59 million.
Giving a breakdown of seizures during the preceding year, he said: "The command was able to make sixty-one seizures, which were mainly foreign rice, totalling 1,740 bags.
"Three suspects are being tried in relation to the smuggling offences,” he said.
Olumoh however lamented that the command's revenue generation for the year was below expectation, a development he blamed on insecurity and flooding within the command.
"The command generated N168,294,227.83 from January to December 2018 as against N186,113,181.28 generated in 2017.
"This can be attributed to challenges faced by officers and men of the command which include, the current state of insurgency in the region, sectarian situation in the Republic of Cameroon and recurring communal clashes in both Adamawa and Taraba states.” SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
