The Oyo and Osun States Area Command of the Nigeria Customs Service on Monday evening destroyed and buried imported turkey and chicken worth more than ₦350,000 seized from smugglers recently. The Area Commander, Mr. Madu Mohammed, said that the turkey and chicken that were in 53 cartons were impounded along with other banned items like textile and used tyres from smugglers long the Osogbo Road in Osun State by vigilant Customsmen last week. The smugglers abandoned the Ekiti State Government bus used in smuggling the items and ran into the bush when they saw that the Customsmen did not relent in their chase.
