July 21, 2016 – Pistol & Bullets Imported Into Lagos Nigeria From US Intercepted At Tincan Island

The Customs Area Controller, Tin-Can Island Command, Comptroller Yusuf Bashar, said on Thursday that the command had intercepted a pistol, four bullets and two Toyota brand of vehicles.

Bashar made the disclosure at a news conference in Lagos.

He said that the pistol was discovered in a Toyota Camry Solara with Chassis No 4TIFA38P46U065280, adding that another Toyota Matrix with a Chassis No 2TILE4EE08C013249 was also intercepted along with the Toyota Camry Solara.

“The Toyota Matrix was intercepted because the same importer that brought the Toyota Camry Solara is also the one that imported the Toyota Matrix.

“This will assist the Customs in further investigation because the pistol is six-round reversal type which is dangerous.

“Customs would have handed it over to the Police but the vehicles arrived on Saturday July 16 at Five Star Logistics, while the terminal operators alerted Customs officers immediately they discovered the pistol in the vehicle,’’ the News Agency of Nigeria 9NAN0 quotes Bashar as saying.

He said that the vehicles were imported from the U.S.

    This importation can’t be for anything than mischief purpose. Seize the vehicles for the police because most robbery operations these days are conducted using similar vehicles. Ifthse were straightforward deals the importers would have followed expected procedures.
