Customs seize donkey genitals at Lagos airport
The Murtala Muhammed Airport Command of the Nigeria Customs Service said it intercepted male donkey genitals and dried shark fins worth N1.23bn at the Lagos Airport en route to China and Hong Kong respectively.
According to a statement on Thursday, the Customs Area Controller in charge of the command, Muhammed Yusuf, disclosed this while showing some of the seized contraband to journalists at the command.
Yusuf explained that the male donkey genitals were harvested from Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, by a Chinese.
He said, “Donkeys are under endangered species and they came from Abakaliki and we begin to wonder why it came from that side. “We have a lot of donkeys in Abakaliki and now that they are endangered species, if these things continue to go out like this, you can imagine the roles they play in the ecosystem. As it is, the Chinese man has been arrested and the investigation is ongoing.”
