With laid down procedure, the recovered bags of rice were transported back to BEECROFT Base and handed over to officials of the Nigeria Customs Service for further action.

The action of the Nigerian Navy at stopping the movement of contrabands and particularly the prevention of importation of foreign rice into the country, is a step to encourage and bolster the efforts of local farmers towards revenue generation and empowerment for better economic and socially viable means of income and livelihood.
