According to him, smugglers are of the opinion that the festive period is a time for merriment and less vigilance, but officers intercepted the truck which the smugglers tried to smuggle from Lagos to other parts of the country.

Attah added that a suspect who happened to be the truck driver has been arrested and in custody for judicial process.
