Since assuming the headship of Ogun Command, barely seven months ago, Shuaibu has overhauled the anti-smuggling landscape of the area, blending enforcement with intelligence; and pushing for unprecedented community relations support.

Within the short period, the command has scaled up seizures of prohibited items including illicit substances, contraband rice, vehicles, ammunition and others without casualties, both on the part of his officers and members of the public.
