Customs Handed In N1.3b To FG In December

The Nigeria Customs Service said it generated about N1.3 billion through its anti-smuggling operations in the  Federal Operations Unit, Zone ‘A’ Ikeja, Lagos, in December 2016 alone.The Public Relations Officer, Customs FoU, Jerry Attah, in a statement on Wednesday said the command intercepted various contraband with a duty paid value (DPV) of N893.8 million during the period.

According to him, the unit recovered N494.4 million from duty payments and demand notices on vehicles and other general goods that tried to beat the system from seaports, airports and border stations in the guise of false declaration, transfer of value, and shortchange in duty payment.

The recoveries add up to N1.388 billion with kudos given to the  Comptroller for motivating the officers and men of the Unit together with compliance levels of some patriotic Nigerians who voluntarily paid appropriate duties on their goods and vehicles before the deadline on the ban of vehicles through land borders.

While commending the officers and men of the Unit for living up to their statutory responsibilities, the Controller, Federal Operations Unit ‘A’, Comptroller Haruna Mamudu, hailed the Comptroller General of Customs Col. Hameed Ibrahim Ali (Rtd), for his effort in appreciating hardwork and diligence to duty, and for always being there in giving a helping hand when the need arises.
