Kebbi: Customs intercepts 73 locally-made guns, 891 cartridges

Three suspects were arrested and detained while a preliminary investigation is ongoing.



The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has intercepted 73 locally manufactured guns and 891 cartridges in Yauri, Zamare waterside, Kebbi.



Customs spokesman Joseph Attah said in a statement on Monday that officers of the NCS, Federal Operation Unit (FOU) Zone B, who were on patrol along the waterside, had seized a truck loaded with locally produced rice.



Some sacks were concealed under the bags of rice. He said that upon careful examination the sacks were found to contain the weapons.



The PRO said that three suspects were arrested and detained while a preliminary investigation is ongoing.



Mr. Attah quoted Hamisu Albashir, controller of FOU Zone B, as saying that the feat was a signal to all those who might be planning to bring any harmful items into the country through the zone.



He appealed to the general public, especially border dwellers, to provide credible information for effective border security.
