The scanning truck arrived in the Apapa area of the state on Monday and was received by the Area Controller, Comptroller Abdullahi Musa.

While receiving the machines, Abdullahi said trained officers on scanning operations will undergo a refresher training to update them on the latest technology.

He thanked the Comptroller General of Customs, Colonel Hameed Ali (retired) for prioritising the command in the delivery.

The Tincan Island Port Command is the second command to receive the scanner after Onne port, Rivers State.
