Some 7,000 pieces of male donkey genitals being smuggled to Hong Kong, China, have been intercepted by the Murtala Mohammed International Airport Cargo Command of the Nigeria Customs Services (NCS) Lagos.
The Customs’ Area Controller, Sambo Dangaladima,who displayed about 16 sacks of the donkey genitals said the consignment had a duty paid value of N216,212,813.
Dangaladima said it was the pungent smell from the bags that drew the attention of the customs officials.
“The importers falsely declared the items as cow genitals. After due examination, my export officers discovered they were donkey genitals. It is the first time we are seizing this type of item. We will not allow such illegal wildlife trade thrive under our watch,” he said.
