The Managing Director, Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) Ms Hadiza Bala Usman has commended the Customs Comptroller General, Col. Hameed Ali (Rtd.) and his management team on the recent seizure of imported weapons.
According to the statement, NPA is impressed about the fact that the controversial 40 feet container manifested to be carrying steel doors had actually exited the port, before it was timely intercepted somewhere around mile 2, Lagos.
She therefore advises that the scope of investigation in respect of this deadly cargo should be broad and thorough.
The Managing Director also enjoins all the security agencies serving in the port, to be extra vigilant, to avoid a re-occurrence of such totally prohibited cargo entering and exiting the port.
