The new Area Controller of the command, Chris Odibu, told newsmen in Ibadan that his command is working hard to surpass last year’s revenue generated.Of the seizures, vehicles top the list with 26 trucks and cars, with 375 (50kg) bags of rice. Others are 271 bales of secondhand clothes, 43 sacks of used shoes and 600 bags of fertilizers.
