Customs intercepts pistol, bullets at Tin Can port

The Customs Area Comptroller, Tin-Can Island Command of the Nigeria Customs Service, Comptroller Yusuf Bashar, said on Thursday that the command intercepted a reversal pistol, four bullet and two Toyota Camry.

Bashar made the disclosure during a briefing in Lagos.

He said that the pistol was discovered in a Toyota Camry Solara a chases number 4TIFA38P46U065280 adding that another Toyota Matrix with chasis number 2TILE4EE08C013249 was also intercepted along the Camry Solara.

“The Toyota Matrix was interested because the same importer that brought the Solara Toyota is also the one that imported the Matrix.

“This will assist Customs for further investigation because the pistol is six round reversal type which could be dangerous.

“Customs will have handed it over to police but the vehicles arrived on Saturday July 16 at Five Star Logistics while the terminal operators alerted customs officers immediately they discover the pistol in the vehicle,” Bashar said.

He said the the vehicle was imported from United State of America.

Bashar urged journalists to feel free and approach the command anytime they need information so that they would be able to report the truth for the public.
