The Duty Paid Value of the seized items was calculated to be fifty one million, four hundred and ninety nine thousand, three hundred and fourteen naira (₦51,499,314).



Particularly among the seizures are cannabis sativa and hard drugs worth twenty two million, one hundred and thirty two thousand, seventy seven naira (₦22, 132, 077) which will be handed over to NDLEA shortly after this briefing.
