Published

on

The Katsina Command of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) says it has intercepted a vehicle loaded with more than N71,350,000 suspected to be for laundering.

Acting Controller at the command, Dalhat Wada-Chedi, made the disclosure on Monday, November 29, while briefing newsmen on the achievements of the command for the month of November 2021.

He said three suspects were arrested at Dan Isa community, located at the bank of Niger Republic with the said amount in the middle of the night

“While intensifying our search on anti-smuggling activities on Katsina-Jibia border axis, we arrested three suspects with N71.350 million Naira cash inside the booth of an ash coloured Toyota Corolla along Katsina Jibia axis exit. The said amount was stashed inside a ghana must go bag.”

According to Wada-Chedi, what warranted the arrest is that the suspects were “in possession of over $10,000 undeclared money, dead of the night, at the border exit route as well as in the place where the border is officially closed.”

“What are they doing with N71,350,000 cash at that hour! We brought the money, the suspects and the vehicle to the command. We counted the money, informed the customs headquarters and then took the money to Central Bank Katsina for safekeeping.

“However, we granted the suspects an administrative bail as the case has been transferred to the headquarters as investigations are ongoing.” Wada-Chedi said.

He said the command also intercepted 230 parcels of Indian hemp worth more than N18.1 million in November.

“IT’S LIKE A DREAM. Where do I even start from? “This woman you see here is my immediate elder sister. She was married and trusting God for the fruit of the womb since 2008.”

It has been 14 solid years of trials, temptations, mockery, disappointment, weeping, crying and dispair.

Men thought they had the final say throughout these 14 years. But Yahweh who rememberd Sarah has proven to men that Him and Him alone have the final say. He proved Himself in our lives by settling my darling sister with a balanced set of twins (a boy and a girl).

Since the news of her delivery got to me since Sunday last week I have been so overjoyed that i couldn’t even think of what to write and post. Now, I fully understand the meaning of Psalm 126:1-3:

“When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them. The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.”

Indeed, what God can not do does not and can not exist. I beg make una join shout two solid Hallelujah to Jesus Christ our Lord.

Double Congratulations to my personal people Mr & Mrs Joy Olorunfemi Samuel Olorunfemi aka Papa & Mama Twins.
