The Zone B of Nigeria Customs Service Federal Operations Unit Kaduna, on Friday, said it had seized 149 smuggled rice valued at over N3.5 million in Kaduna.

The command Public Relations officer, Abubakar Usman, made the disclosure in a statement made available to newsmen in Kaduna.

Mr Usman said that the rice was seized at Mando motorpark in Kaduna while being re-bagged in local sacks to be transported to Lagos.

He said operatives of the command swooped on the site following intelligence reports, but added that no arrest was made.

“We will continue to make seizures and also ensure that smugglers keep recording loses until they abandon the illegal business.”
