The FOU Zone B operatives don’t mount check-point in the hinterland,’’ he said.

He said what smugglers are doing is inimical to the economy and the development of the country, adding that some of the border communities do not know the dangers associated with smuggling.

“We will let them know that they can earn a living without resorting to smuggling,’’ Sarkin-Kebbi said.

He added that operatives also arrested six persons in connection with smuggling activities during the period.
