Nigeria Customs intercepts 202 motorcycles from suspected bandits in Katsina State

The Nigeria Customs Service (NSC) on Friday said it intercepted 202 motorcycles from terror bandits and their collaborators in Katsina State between August and September this year.

The motorcycles are the major means of transport for the terrorists and bandits in Nigeria.

Acting Controller of the Katsina State Customs Command, Alhaji Chedi Wada, said that the motorcycles, mostly Boxers and Jencheng models, were confiscated around forests close to border areas.

According to Wada, “we suspected that the motorcycles were used for conveyance of petrol, food items and smuggled items to bandits in the forest.

“Most of the people we seized the machines from fled and no one came to claim the motorcycles.”

He said the command is working assiduously in ensuring that no contraband or illegal item is brought into the country through any of the borders in the State.

“The fight against banditry, kidnapping, cattle rustling and other forms of crimes and criminal acts in the state and the country in general is a collective effort.

“The custom service, like any other security agency, also has a stake in it.

“Here in Katsina state, we are determined despite all odds; we will make sure we assist to bring the bandits and other criminals to their knees,” Chedi said.
