The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has given 421 trailers of rice totalling 252,666 packs esteemed at N3.78 billion to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) over the most recent 22 months.

The Spokesman of the NCS, Mr Joseph Attah, made this known to newsmen in Lagos on Thursday while talking on the exercises of the Nigeria Customs Service in 2017.

Attah, a Deputy Comptroller of Customs, said that the gifts were in accordance with a Presidential mandate on the transfer of perishable seizures after due persistence of court judgment.

He said that the gifts were made in four states which include of Borno, Yobe, Adamawa and Edo.

Attah said that different products were bug sprays, foot wears, packs and 1 x40ft holder of solidified tilapia angle.

He said that managed Customs hostile to sneaking endeavors had kept the administration distribution centers loaded with seizures despite the different gifts made by the administration to IDPs.

Apart from the bags of rice,  other goods included were insecticides, foot wears, bags and 1 x40ft container of frozen tilapia fish according to Attah.

“In spite of the tonnes of rice and other relief items already transferred to the IDPs, some NCS warehouses are still filled with rice.

“This only shows that the sustained onslaught against unrepentant rice smugglers continues to yield positive results.

“The ones in the warehouses now are either awaiting court condemnation or forfeiture to the Federal Government or have already been allocated to governments of the affected states, who paid the Army Corps of Transport and Logistics for transportation of the goods to the IDPs.

“Eventually, the seized rice and other perishable items presently in the warehouses will be given to fellow Nigerians affected by the unfortunate insurgency in the North East,’’ said the spokesman.
