The Acting Comptroller of the Katsina Customs Area Command, DC Dalha Wada, has paraded some electronic chargers imported by bandits to power their handsets in the forests. Dalha Wada displayed the chargers while explaining how the chargers work during his interview on AIT Live.
Security agencies in the country are not relenting in the renewed onslaught against bandits and their suppliers in the Northern part of the country. You may recall that some states in the North have banned the operation of charging points and the sale of petrol in jerrycans. Over the past few weeks, there has been a continuous parade of different suspects in connection to the distribution of supplies to bandits in the forests.
During his interview with AIT Live, DC Dalha Wada displayed the drugs intercepted by customs officers from getting to bandits. The Katsina Customs boss also showed the USB chargers imported by bandits to power handsets in Katsina forests while explaining how it works.
During his interview, Dalha Wada said, “We intercepted some drugs imported for bandits in the bush. We intercepted the drugs at an area close to the forest. The inscriptions on some of the drugs we seized are not in the English language.”
Addressing the intercepted chargers, Dalha Wada said, “People often wonder how bandits can charge their mobile phones in the forests. Some people have suggested that they may be using power banks, but power banks do not last for long. The intercepted charger has two terminals and can be connected to their motorcycle batteries and used to charge their mobile gadgets. The intercepted chargers are also solar-powered.”
