Customs Suspends 14 Officers

Fourteen Customs Officers have been suspended and their Salaries stopped in Continuation of efforts by the Nigeria Customs Service to instill transparency into its operations.

Comptroller-General of Customs, Dikko Inde Abdullahi OFR disclosed this in Abuja while addressing journalists in his office.

Ten of the Officers are of the ranks of Deputy Comptrollers and Assistant Comptrollers while the rest are in the Inspector Cadres.

The suspended Officers were involved in the fraudulent release of vehicles and other goods in Tincan Island and Apapa Ports.

The officers suspended are: Gidado, J. T., a Deputy Comptroller of Apapa Port; Odege, T. C Ukonu, A. U, Shinkafi, M. F, Ibrahim, L. G, Lawal, B. K and Halilu, A. R, all Assistant Comptrollers, in Tincan Island Port, Lagos. The rest are Chief Superintendent Waziri, B. F, Idris, M, Harry, N. B, Elemi, P. E, Aliyu, S and Mohammed, A, all Senior Inspectors.

Also suspended is Dr. K. C. Ike of the Port Harcourt Medical Unit for absenteeism.

“At this stage of our efforts to transform the Service, we cannot afford to tolerate illegal conduct of the nature exhibited by those officers. I am disappointed that despite our efforts to turn-around the Service, some senior Officers are still found wanting”, he stated.

He added that the suspension of the Officers is expected to send a signal to all officers and Men, that the new Customs has no place for those who through their own activities are considered to be “Revenue and Security risks to the nation”
