FG uncovers routes used for illegal exporting of food


Vice President Kashim Shettima stated that 45 trucks transporting corn were stopped on route to neighboring countries.

Vice President Kashim Shettima delivered this information during a symposium on Public Wealth Management in Abuja, the nation’s capital, on Tuesday.

The Vice President said, “Just three nights ago, 45 trucks of maize were caught being transported to neighbouring countries. Just in that Ilela axis, there are 32 illegal smuggling routes. And the moment those food stuff were intercepted, the price of maize came down by N10,000. It came down from N60,000 to N50,000.

“So, there are forces that are hell-bent on undermining our nation but this is the time for us to coalesce into a singular entity,” he said.
