Military bans fish smuggling in Borno


The Nigerian military said it has observed that following the reopening of Maiduguri -Monguno -Baga Road, the illicit act of fish smuggling has been on the increase. Unfortunately, it said that most of the fish or its proceeds end up in the hands of Boko Haram insurgents, thus providing logistics replenishment for the insurgents.

In view of this “untoward development, the Theatre Command Operation Lafiya Dole has reminded the general public that the ban on transportation of fish in commercial quantity along the aforementioned route is still very much in force and defaulters will be arrested and sanctioned. Only subsistence fishing for inhabitants’ consumption is permitted.”
