He noted that the criminals have become so sofisticated in the method they employed to carry out their nefarious activities in order to evade being arrested by Security Agencies.

He added that it took the prying eyes of officers and men of anti Vandal unit to beat their antics as the consignment which supposed to be transported by tankers were neatly wrapped in polythene bags and covered on the surface with bags of saw dusts..

He said three suspects have been arrested in connection with the seizures while the alleged  escort escaped, vowing to ensure that all those behind the act would be arrested and brought to book.

While commending president Muhammadu Buhari for appointing  Ahmed Abubakar Audi  the Controller General of NSCDC as a good omen for the force, warned criminals to turn a new leaf or be ready to meet their Waterloo.
