Customs Auctions N 1 .5 bn Benin Republic Bound Petrol


The Nigeria Customs Service ( NCS) , Federal Operations Unit (FOU ), Zone A , Ikeja has auctioned part of the intercepted N1 . 5 billion petroleum products to the public .
The service started the auctioning of the first set of the 11 ,000 jerry cans that were evacuated from Ijofin, a creek under Ipokia local government of Ogun State. The auctioning which started on Monday to members of the public still continued till Tuesday. Also , security agencies who collaborated with the unit in fighting smuggling at the creeks and land borders were freely given the seized products . Speaking to LEADERSHIP on reason why the service auctioned the fuel , the command public relation officer , Jerry Attah , said it was done because the seized product was highly inflammable and cannot be kept for long . “We all know that if we sell at Idiroko , we are selling back to the smugglers but because we don ’t want to encourage the saboteurs , we have to sell to the public at an affordable rate,” he told LEADERSHIP. Recall that the enforcement unit of the FOU Zone A , Ikeja on Friday intercepted 50 ,000 Jerry cans of petroleum products bound for Benin Republic . The petroleum product were sandwiched in about 12 wooden speed boats to be smuggled out of the country .
