EFCC Impounds 21 Trucks Suspected of Smuggling Food Items

Officials from the Maiduguri Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) intercepted and confiscated 21 trucks loaded with food and non-food items being unlawfully transported out of Nigeria to neighboring countries such as Chad, Central African Republic, and Cameroon.

These trucks were intercepted along the Kalabiri/Gamboru Ngala and Bama roads in Borno State.

According to EFCC spokesman, Dele Oyewale, investigations revealed that the food items were carefully concealed within the trucks, a situation that might have gone unnoticed if not for the vigilance of EFCC operatives.

“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 will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded,” Oyewale stated.
