Assistant Comptroller of Customs, Mr Tahiru Musa, in a press conference in Abuja, said forensic experts in Canada and the U.S. assisted the service to crack the syndicate group. He said the syndicate was traced to a company, BIIS, at No 110 Tetlow Road, Owerri, while the website was hosted by an Ibadan-based company, Skyskay System Limited.
