Tinubu orders Customs to return seized food items to owners


President Bola Tinubu has reportedly ordered the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) to give back the food items they seized at the border communities to the rightful owners.

This, according to him, goes with a condition that the items would be sold in Nigerian markets.

The Customs Chief, Adewale Adeniyi, revealed this in Katsina yesterday while meeting with people from border areas at Kongolam and Mai’Adua border stations.

He mentioned that President Tinubu had made a decision to use his authority not based on legal guidelines, but rather reflecting the deep sense of generosity he holds towards Nigeria.

“In doing so, he has directed that those food items that were going out of the country that have been seized in various border areas should be returned to the owners on the condition that the goods would be sold in the Nigerian markets.

“So, we will be monitoring you to know if there is a violation of this. Those food items will be returned, and it is a directive that we will pass them back into the Nigerian markets,” Adeniyi said.
