The Bureau of Customs in Cagayan de Oro recently shredded over Php 20 million worth of smuggled cigarettes that were seized in different port of entries in Northern Mindanao. The destruction of the said items were conducted inside Digama Warehouse and Destruction Facility in Barangay Bayabas, Cagayan de Oro last Wednesday, September 9.
Photos below show Customs District Collector John Simon and the remnants of destroyed smuggled cigarettes. The destruction is to make sure no illegally imported cigarettes will reach the market that may harm consumers.
