Vice President Kashim Shettima has confirmed the interception of 45 trucks conveying maize to neighbouring countries.

He disclosed this during a conference on Public Wealth Management in Abuja on Tuesday.

“Just three nights ago, 45 trucks of maize were caught being transported to neighbouring countries. Just in that Ilela axis, there are 32 illegal smuggling routes,” the VP said.

He further explained that after the interception, the price of maize, which was the major grain being transported, came down by N10,000, falling from N60,000 to N50,000.

The VP alleged that some people are hell-bent on undermining the government, but called on Nigerians to coalesce into a singular entity.

The Federal Government is putting different measures in place to ensure food security across the country.
