This is part of our ongoing efforts to thwart the smuggling of petroleum products into every crevice of the command, he said. On a routine sweep through the bushes in Seme and Badagry, the officers and soldiers of the Seme Area Command discovered yet another sizable quantity of petroleum products contained in sacks and jerry cans.

“The arrest happened this morning early” (yesterday). The quantity of petroleum products seized was believed to be roughly 2,500 jerry cans, each holding 30 liters, for a total of 75,000 liters. The DPV is only N19,785,000.

He said the achievement was made possible by the command’s use of reliable intelligence about smugglers’ actions.

Jibo advised those who engaged in these illicit operations to avoid the Seme border routes or risk suffering significant losses from his men’s determination to drive them out of the region.
