The Tin Can Island Port Command of the Nigeria Customs Service says it has handed over to the National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control two containers falsely declared as containing vehicles and computer accessories.

The service said instead of three used vehicles, cartons of makeup kits, 850 cartons of computer accessories (keyboard and mouse), declared in the manifest, 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.

A statement issued by the Public Relations Officer of the Customs command, Uche Ejesieme, on Wednesday stated that the seizure was a sequel to the latest operational methodology adopted by the command through profiling, cargo selectivity and system checks of the advance electronic manifest.
