By Amechispark

The Comptroller-General of Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), retired Col. Hammed Ali, said operatives of the ongoing Joint Border Security had seized items worth N1.4 billion since the partial closure of borders.

Ali disclosed this during a joint news conference with his counterpart from the Nigeria Immigration Service, Mr Mohammed Babandede, in Abuja on Monday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the joint border security exercise, codenamed "Exercise Swift Response", commenced operation on Aug. 20.

It is set up to ensure a better security of the country's territorial integrity, particularly the land and maritime borders against trans-border security concerns.
