Operatives of the Maiduguri Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Tuesday, impounded 21 trucks loaded with food and non-food items.

The anti-graft agency said the trucks were heading towards N’djamena, Chad Republic, Central African Republic and Cameroon.

It said the trucks were intercepted in a sting operation at major exit routes along Kalabiri/Gamboru Ngala and Bama roads, Borno State.

A statement issued by the agency said, “Investigation showed food items cleverly concealed in the trucks that would have gone undetected but for the eagle-eyed vigilance of operatives of the Commission.

“Further checks showed that the Waybills covering the goods carried by trucks indicated their destinations as N'djamena, Chad Republic, Central Africa Republic and Cameroon respectively.

“The arrest of the trucks is expected to stem the tide of food insecurity occasioned by unscrupulous antics of smugglers across the country.
