These two customs officers have been declared wanted in connection with the clearance of the 661 pump-action riffles intercepted in Lagos. The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) recently intercepted and seized a massive weapons haul of 661 brand new pump-action rifles in Lagos state.

In a press statement delivered by the Comptroller-General of NCS Hameed Ali at a briefing in Lagos on Monday, January 30, the outfit said the guns were intercepted on Sunday, January 22.

The Customs clarified that the actions of the importer contravened the provisions of the Nigerian laws and it is even more so given the fragile level of security in the country at the moment.

The Customs confirmed the arrest of three people in connection with the importation of the large arms. They suspects' names were given as: Oscan Okafor (Importer) age 51, Mahmud Hassan (Clearing Agent) age 56 and Sadique Mustapha (who accompanied the consignment to its destination) age 28.

Hameed Ali says more arrests could still be made as an investigation has been opened into the matter.
