Customs Intercepts South African Airways With N68.9m Frozen Chicken In Lagos by FriendNG: 6:11pm On Nov 13
The Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA) Command and the Murtala Mohammed Area Command (Cargo Section), both of the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) has revealed that N68.9million frozen products smuggled through the airport due to the border closure policy of the Federal Government, has been seized.

This was disclosed, on Tuesday, at a joint press briefing between the Customs Area Controllers of the MMIA command and Muritala Muhammed Area Command, comptroller Adewale Adeniyi and comptroller Lena Oyama respectively.

It was gathered that 40 cartons of the poultry products were intercepted on a South African Airways flight while 104 cartons were abandoned on the tarmac of the terminal.


Speaking to journalists on Tuesday in Lagos, the Controller of MMIA, Comptroller Adeniyi said the seizure was as a result of the border closure because the seizure was the first of its kinds in the history of the airport commands.

According to Adeniyi, “on the night of 10th November, 2019, following the discharge of cargo from a South African Airways flight 5A060 from Johannesburg, our Tarmac operatives intercepted a consignment which were indicated as perishables, and are therefore qualified for pre-release at the cargo wing.

Even South Africa dey rush us. After they will be misbehaving.

The earlier Shoprite starts selling chicken bred in Nigeria, the better for them.

This is the best time to venture into agriculture.

This is actually a huge loss for those concerned.

Meanwhile mini portable USB Rechargeable Hand Fan available in large quantities.

This fan works as a power bank. So you can charge your phone or power bank while taking advantage of cool air.

The battery lasts upto 4-5 hours(depending on the speed)

Price is just N1, 500.
