The Nigeria Customs Service, Tin Can Island Port Command, says it has handed over two containers of seized drugs to the National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC.
NCS said the containers were falsely declared as containing three used vehicles, cartons of makeup kits, and 850 cartons of computer accessories (keyboard and mouse).
But 240 cartons of Tramadol Hydrochloride, 240 cartons of Double Extra Strong Tramadol, 240 cartons of Super Power Tramadol Hydrochloride, 70 cartons of Ibamol and 60 cartons of Really Extra Analgesique were found in the containers.
The Public Relations Officer of the command, Uche Ejesieme, on Wednesday stated that the containers were seized due to the latest operational method adopted.
He said the method includes, profiling, cargo selectivity and system checks of the advance electronic manifest.
He noted that the procedures were adopted to ensure that all imports were electronically monitored with a view to identifying non-compliance and other infractions.
