EFCC OPERATIVES INTERCEPT 21 TRUCKS CONVEYING FOOD ITEMS TO NEIGHBOURING COUNTRIES                                                                             07-03-24

By Sadiq Aminu                                                    Operatives of the Maiduguri Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Tuesday, March 5, 2024, arrested 21 trucks loaded with food and non-food items heading towards N’djamena, Chad Republic, Central African Republic and Cameroon.

A Statement by the EFCC spokesman, Mr Dele Oyewale says , The trucks were intercepted in a sting operation at major exit routes along Kalabiri/Gamboru Ngala and Bama roads, Borno State.

Investigation showed food items cleverly concealed in the trucks that would have gone undetected, but for the eagle-eyed vigilance of operatives of the Commission.

Further checks showed that the Waybills covering the goods carried by the trucks indicated their destinations as N’djamena, Chad Republic, Central Africa Republic and Cameroon respectively.

The arrest of the trucks is expected to stem the tide of food insecurity occasioned by unscrupulous antics of smugglers across the country.

Suspects arrested with the trucks are being profiled and would be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.
