Customs nabs Dangote truck for smuggling rice in Adamawa  



A truck belonging to Dangote transporting 150 bags of foreign rice has been nabbed by the men of the Nigerian Customs Service along Mayo-Belwa road in Adamawa State.

The arrest is one in several other arrests made by the Customs as part of its crackdown on smuggling activities in Adamawa and Taraba states.

The Adamawa and Taraba Comptroller of Customs, Kamardeen Olumoh, made the disclosure while presenting the performance report of his command to newsmen in Yola on Friday.

Olumoh said: “One Dangote truck carrying 150 bags of foreign rice was intercepted along Mayo-Belwa road on the last day of the year.

“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.”
