Man smuggles bags of rice as dead bodies
Operatives of the Nigeria Customs Service on Thursday arrested a smuggler at the Seme Border who in his attempt to smuggle bags of rice into the country packaged it like dead bodies.
Following the ban on rice importation smugglers have devised ingenious ways to circumvent the directive.
Yesterday an attempt by a suspected smuggler, Moses Degbogbahun, to smuggle 11 50kg bags of rice in a Volvo ambulance with Lagos registration number DV 74EKY after he packaged them to look like dead bodies was thwarted by the eagle eyed Customs officials.
According to the leader of the patrol team, Chief Superintendent of Customs, Mr. Ozah M., the spate at which Degbogbahun was bringing ‘dead bodies’ into the country with the ambulance raised suspicion.
“So he was stopped around Aradagun area of Badagry, and proper examination was carried out by our men during which eleven bags of imported rice wrapped as corpses were found in the ambulance,” Ozah told newsmen.
