Nigerian Customs destroys $0.24m worth of frozen turkey

OYO: The Oyo/Osun Area Command of the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) at the weekend destroyed 5,390 cartons of frozen turkey in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

The poultry product, which was seized along the old Eruwa Road in Ilugun area of the state, was destroyed and buried at a dump site in an outskirt of the city.

Deputy Comptroller (Administration) Usman, who put the duty paid value of the goods at N37,730,000 ($235,665.35), warned citizens against consuming imported poultry products, saying they are dangerous to health. He said the way the animals were killed and preserved could not be ascertained.
