The Nigeria Customs Area Command (CAC) Katsina State says it generated N538.4 million as Free on Board FOB value for the exportation of 10,827.40 metric tones of items such as cement, hibiscus flower, chilli pepper, animal feeds, tamarind, beverages among others.

The Command also said that N99.7 million was generated as revenue from July to August 11, 2022.

The Controller, Katsina Area Command, Dalha Wada Chedi made this known at a Press Conference in Katsina.

Chedi however noted that the N99.7 million generated by the command within the period under review was a decline from what the command realised in June.

Chedi attributed the decline in revenue to the incessant banditry attacks experience along Jibia axis in recent times.

However, Chedi said no cause for alarm as the command in conjunction with other sister security agents have adapted new strategies to curb the twin evil of banditry and smuggling experienced in the Jibia/Niger Republic border for legitimate businesses to thrive along the border corridor.

According to Chedi, smuggled items seized by the command within the period under was to the tune of N73.6 million. The seized items includes: food items, motorcycles, reconstructed vehicles used as a means of conveyance for smuggled items, among others.
