A collaborative patrol unit consisting of the Nigerian Customs Service, Federal Operations Unit, Zone A, along with soldiers, has intercepted a boat transporting smuggled rice and vehicles along the waterside in the Badagry area of Lagos State.

The statement reads: "A joint patrol team comprising FOU A personnel and some soldiers intercepted a boat carrying smuggled rice and vehicles by the waterside in Badagry, Lagos State.
