Others were 21 cartons of spaghetti, 18 cartons of milky creamer, two vehicles without proper documentation and four vehicle used for smuggling.
Hamisu also listed 15 bags of refined sugar, 15 cartons of tea, 14 cartons of second hands shoes, 11 cartons of cuscus, eight cartons of Basmati rice, four cartons of condensed milk and six bags of fertilizer, as other items seized.
