Following intelligence reports, the Customs Area Controller of the Command, Rasheed Taiwo led a team of crack officers to Ilashe village to identify the buildings. Officers subsequently swooped on the illegal warehouse, while armed operatives took strategic positions in the village to forestall any incident. The villagers reputed for their open hostilities towards Customs operatives watched in disbelief as over 300 bags of 50 kg rice and sugar were emptied from the houses into customs trucks and patrol vans.
