The Nigeria Customs Service says Nigeria has saved N1.4 billion naira since the partial closure of the nation's borders. Comptroller General of Customs, Colonel Hameed Ali (rtd), announced this while addressing a news conference on Monday in Abuja, the nation's capital.

According to him, a total of 317 suspected smugglers and 146 illegal migrants were also arrested during the period. The Customs boss insisted that the partial border closure was yielding the desired results as the nation's consumption of petroleum products has dropped by 10.2 million litres.
