The Oyo/Osun Command of the Nigerian Customs Service on Thursday destroyed tons of frozen chicken and turkey smuggled into the country.
The consignment was destroyed by fire in Ibadan having been seized by the Command.
The consignment was set for distribution into markets in the two states before it was impounded by the Nigerian Customs Service.
The team that set fire to the smuggled goods was led by the Customs Ares Controller for the Command, Mr. Temitope Ogunkua.
Importation of frozen meat has long been banned by the Federal Government.
