Customs Seize Cigarette Declared As Millet In Lagos Port. Photos


Four containers of cigarette falsely declared as millet have been seized by the Nigerian Customs Service in a sea port in the nation’s commercial city Lagos. The Comptroller of the command, Willy Egbudin, told reporters that the cargo with products from China had not been certified by any control agency in Nigeria and had no production and expiry date.

The four containers declared as millet, upon examination, proved to be packs of cigarette, the Customs official said.

He, however, handed down warning to erring importers and agents.

For now, the agent is in custody and investigation has commenced to ascertain the veracity and bring the culprit to justice.

It is the second set of large cargo intercepted by the Apapa Port Command over false declaration in the last one month.
