The Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) Thursday said it generated N1.1 trillion revenue and seized contraband goods worth more than N40 billion between January and November 2018.

The Public Relations Officer of the service, Deputy Comptroller, Joseph Attah, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.

Attah said the amount realised had far surpassed the N1.03 trillion generated in 2017.

The spokesperson also said 59 containers of tramadol and other controlled drugs were confiscated across the commands within the period of time.

He added that 40 containers were seized in Apapa Port, 10 in Tincan Port in Lagos State and nine in Onne Port in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

Attah said that the quantum of seized goods was a testimony that the service had improved in its ability to block leakages and enforce the anti-smuggling law this year.
