The Comptroller of Customs, Kano/Jigawa Command, Suleiman Umar, who disclosed this to journalists on Wednesday in Kano, said the suspect was arrested while trying to board an Ethiopian flight to Turkey.

The suspect and the items had since been handed over to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for questioning and possible prosecution.
