He noted that in the course of their operation, they received information that expired goods worth billions of naira were kept in a warehouse in the Kano metropolis. Kiyawa said:
“The task force team stormed the warehouse, where one million naira was offered them as a bribe. They rejected the bribe, recovered the expired goods, the money as an exhibit and arrested the suspect."
