The Customs Service, Seme Border Area Command, says it has arrested a fake corps member suspected to specialise in smuggling banned vehicles into Nigeria through Seme border post.

The Customs Area Controller, Comptroller Mohammed Garba, made this known at a news conference on Wednesday in Seme.

According to him, the arrest was made on Sunday when the suspect was bringing in the vehicle without any document across the border.

Garba said the suspect claimed to be a serving youth corps member.

The comptroller said that while crosschecking the vehicle document, it was discovered that the document was reading Primera, while in reality the car was Renault.

Garba said the case would soon be transferred to the police for his prosecution.

The suspect, however, denied the allegations, during an interview with newsmen.

The suspect said he went to drop a person in Ghana and was on his way back to Nigeria when he was arrested by men of the customs command.
