Fifteen trucks of grains seized by the Sokoto/Zamfara Area Command of the Nigeria Customs Service, have been returned to their rightful owners following President Bola Tiinubu's directive.

In a statement issued by Abdullahi Abubakar, the Public Relations Officer of the command,  on Tuesday evening, March 12, it was announced that the seized food items would be returned.

Recall that President Tinubu ordered the Customs to give back all the seized food items at the border to their owners on the condition that the items should be sold in Nigerian markets to help increase food availability.
