Nigeria CustomsIn a recent news conference held in Lagos, Nigeria, the Nigeria Customs Area Controller, Tin-Can Island Command, Comptroller Yusuf Bashar said that the command had intercepted a pistol, four bullets and two Toyota brand of vehicles.

He said that the pistol was discovered in a Toyota Camry Solara, adding that another Toyota Matrix was also intercepted.

“The same importer that brought the Toyota Camry Solara also imported the Toyota Matrix.

“This will assist the Customs in further investigation because the pistol is six-round reversal type which is dangerous.

“Customs would have handed it over to the Police but the vehicles arrived on July 16 at Five Star Logistics, while the terminal operators alerted Customs officers immediately they discovered the pistol in the vehicle,” the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quotes Bashar as saying.

He said that the vehicles were imported from the U.S.

Bashar urged newsmen to feel free to approach the command any time they need information so that they would be able to report the truth to the public.

He said that the Customs Service would hand over the seizures to the Police after concluding its investigation. (NAN)
