EFCC Arrests 21 Food-laden Trucks Headed For Neighbouring Countries


0

Operatives of the Maiduguri Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, have arrested 21 trucks loaded with food and non-food items heading towards N’djamena, Chad Republic, Central African Republic and Cameroon.

The trucks were intercepted on Tuesday, March 5, 2024, and arrested in a sting operation at major exit routes along Kalabiri/Gamboru Ngala and Bama roads, Borno State.

Investigation showed that 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.

Further checks showed that the waybills covering the goods carried by the trucks indicated their destinations as N’djamena, Chad Republic, Central Africa Republic, and Cameroon respectively.

“The arrest of the trucks is expected to stem the tide of food insecurity occasioned by unscrupulous antics of smugglers across the country”, said the anti-graft agency’s spokesman, Dele Oyewale, adding that, “suspects arrested with the trucks are being profiled and would be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded”.
