Kano-Jigawa Area command of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) generated over N18.8 billion between January and June as revenue.
Area Comptroller, Mr Sambo Dangadima, disclosed this this in an interview with Newsmen in Kano on Wednesday.
Sambo said that the area command has ordered officers deployed to border posts to intensify efforts in preventing any form of smuggling.
“We are battle ready to end smuggling.
“We have also reached out to youths in the border communities, to assist our field officers with intelligence information that will assist in curbing all forms of smuggling activities.
“The command is no go area for smugglers,” he said.
Additionally, he solicited the support of stakeholders in mobilising residents to shun smuggling and embrace legal means of imports and exports of local goods.
Dangadima issued a warning to those who were assisting and abetting smugglers to stop immediately.
