Men of the Sokoto Area Command of the Nigerian Customs Service have raided a house allegedly owned by a high ranking politician in Sokoto State and recovered exotic vehicles, including SUV Lexus jeeps and Toyota Avensis cars, DailyTrust has reported.
The vehicles said to be 48 in number were discovered in a fenced house at Ruggan Waru area along Aliyu Shinkafi Polytechnic, Sokoto. The cars were said to have been imported illegally into the country.
A report by DailyNigerian added that the vehicles, made up of old model Lexus jeeps (2007 model) and Toyota Avensus (2005 model), were seized from one Mustapha Muhammed, popularly known as Mustapha Mafia, a member of Sokoto branch of Car Dealers Association of Nigeria.
Inside sources at the Customs headquarters said the vehicles were smuggled into the country in batches between December and March this year by Mr Mafia.
“Gamji Motors, owned by one Mukhtar Muhammed, aka Mafia, imported the vehicles without paying the necessary charges to the authority. Intelligence reports led us to the vehicles.
“He provided their keys and we moved them to our offices. He has already come forward to claim it and as it is in this kind of situation, we are calculating what is due to the government with necessary penalties for him to pay.

“If he meets all our criteria by paying the dues and the penalties, we will then take a decision on whether to release the vehicles or not,” the source said.
Meanwhile, leadership of the Car Dealers Association have been making frantic efforts to raise the fines to be imposed by the Customs which sources say may exceed N30 million.
