Malaysian Police arrest Nigerians for smuggling cooking oil

Police in Malaysia has arrested three Nigerian men allegedly smuggling cooking oil subsidized by the Malaysian government for its citizen, for illegal shipment to Nigeria.

The commodities were concealed in kettles and rice cookers meant for export to Nigeria.

North Klang district police Chief ACP Vijaya Rao stated that the suspects were nabbed when police raided a vehicle spare parts shop in Bandar Baru Klang.

“We believe the high price of cooking oil in Nigeria prompted the suspects to smuggle the items. We are conducting further investigations to determine the amount of cooking oil smuggled out,” he added
