Disclosing this to newsmen in Ibadan on Wednesday was the Oyo/osun area commander, Oteri Richard.

He said that the organisation has kept up security functions in ensuring smuggling is reduced to the barest minimum in the country.

The goods were recovered two weeks ago along ilero area of kajola local government in Saki.

Two suspects are already in the net of the Customs over the suspected smuggled items.

Oteri reiterated the resolve of the Customs service under the present Controller General to deal decisively with any act that will impede the success of the on-going federal government drive towards being among the top 20 global economies.

He then promised under his control economic saboteurs will be dealt with decisively.

When a team of top flight media practitioners -- journalists, marketers, sales directors; indeed, the entire mix -- met on January 5, 2014, to review media practice in Nigeria, a conclusion became ineluctable: We must stop identifying the weaknesses of the items on offer and give Nigerians the real deal. The Morning Mail was thus born, to give the country a newspaper that is truly committed to the highest ideals of journalism. It is yet an evolving newspaper, but it is currently being piloted by Oluyinka Olujimi (LL.M UCLan, L.B., B.L.) as Publisher/CEO; respected ace cartoonist and administrator, Moses Ebong, as Executive Director (Brands and Marketing); and veteran political editor, Akinjide Akintola (Managing Editor), among others.
