EFCC arrests 21 food-laden trucks heading to neighbouring countries

 

By Soni Daniel

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, yesterday, arrested 21 trucks loaded with food and non-food items heading towards N’djamena, Chad Republic, Central African Republic and Cameroon.

According to EFCC’s spokesman, Dele Oyewale, the food-laden trucks were intercepted in a sting operation at major exit routes along Kalabiri/Gamboru Ngala and Bama roads, Borno State.

Oyewale in a statement, said the food items were cleverly concealed in the trucks that would have gone undetected, but for the eagle-eyed vigilance of operatives of the commission.

The anti-graft agency also said the waybills covering the goods carried by the trucks indicated their destinations as N’djamena, Chad Republic, Central Africa Republic and Cameroon.

The arrest of the trucks is expected to stem the tide of food insecurity occasioned by unscrupulous antics of smugglers across the country.

The statement said the suspects arrested with the trucks were being profiled and would be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.
