The Western Marine Command of the Nigeria Customs Service on Tuesday vowed to keep up the fight against smuggling of frozen poultry products, especially around Yekeme, near Badagry.

Controller in charge of the command, Yusuf Umar, said this while destroying 1,583 cartons of smuggled poultry products in Lagos.

He said the command had seized and destroyed 6,668 cartons of poultry products from July 7 to date when Operation Hawk Descend’ was established to fight the smuggling of the products.

Umar said customs would work to ensure that revenue leakages were plugged, just as it would work to protect the nation’s economy through its services.

He warned that smugglers must stop or be ready to face the wrath of the law.

The destruction of the products was witnessed by officials of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), men of the police force and Department for State Security( DSS).
