The command’s comptroller, Suleiman Umar, made this known while briefing newsmen in Kano.
Umar said Suleiman was arrested in possession of $184,800 and 1.7 million Saudi Riyals at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano.
“The suspect arrived on Ethiopian Airlines. The law in Nigeria mandates that every traveler who intends to travel with cash above 10,000 dollars must declare it to the authorities. Suleiman failed to do.
“The suspect and the currencies have been taken to the zonal office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for further investigation,” he said.
The comptroller further said that the command has generated over N12 billion from January to date.
He also said that within the period under review, the command seized 108 bags of foreign rice, 413 cartons of foreign soap, 512 cartons of spaghetti and 83 of the 20 litres of vegetable oil.
