A Nigerian woman, Olufemi Aina, who tried to smuggle more than 45,000 cigarettes through Glasgow Airport, has been found guilty and sentenced.
Oluwafemi Aina, 48, who is a Glasgow resident, was stopped by Border Force officers and had three suitcases seized after flying into the airport from Amsterdam in February 2019.
She had previously flown from Nigeria to Paris before travelling to the Netherlands.
When she was interviewed in connection with the find, Aina claimed the 45,400 Benson and Hedges cigarettes had been bought in Nigeria as a wedding present.
Following an HMRC investigation, she was found to have evaded £16,000 of excise duty.
Aina was found guilty after trial at Paisley Sheriff Court on Thursday, October 19 and sentenced to 300 hours of unpaid work to be completed over a year.
