President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) to give relief materials seized from smugglers in it warehouses to Internally Displaced Persons, (IDPs)
According to the para-military public relations officer, Wale Adeniyi, the comptroller general has set up a national committee that would coordinate and manage the movement and the transfer of seized relief items to give effect to the President’s directive.
“It is important to stress that these items are only those that have been condemned properly in the competent court of law and have been forfeited to the Federal Government of Nigeria.
“They include food items like rice, vegetable oil, spaghetti and essential items like soap, used clothing materials, mosquito nets, beddings and others,’’ he said.
Mr. Adeniyi said that members of the committee were drawn from Customs Service, Army, Air Force, Police, Immigration Service and the EFCC.
According to him, the customs boss also included some NGOs, civil society organisations and the media to give the committee a measure of transparency and credibility.
However, he said that the distribution of relief items to the IDPs would slightly be different from the previous ones the service had done.
“This time around, our targets are not the IDPs camps; our targets are the IDPs themselves who are in these camps.”
“We expect that the exercise will take a period of about eight weeks and the trip will start very soon.
“The exercise is going to be slightly different from what we have been doing before because we want these things to end up directly with the end users.
We are going to be working with state governments, community leaders and other relief agencies to ensure that these items get to the IDPs in a secure and transparent manner,” Mr. Adeniyi assured.
Hundreds of thousands of people were displaced by the Boko Haram insurgency that has ravaged north-eastern Nigeria.
Meanwhile, the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has mandated all its officers to declare their assets.
