4. The Controller, Federal Operations Unit ‘A’, Comptroller Haruna Mamudu commended his officers and men for this great feat in this first quarter of 2017 despite the economic recession. He wondered why some elements would invest their money in business of illegalities knowing fully well that the law could catch up with them any given time.
 
5. While appealing to all well meaning Nigerians to join the Service in the fight against smuggling which has wrecked a lot of havoc to the nation’s economy, charged all officers and men of the Unit to be professional and diligent in performing their statutory responsibilities, most especially in the area of anti-smuggling operations by making sure all revenue linkages are blocked.
