A Customs Boss Interesting Statement In 2015 On Mounting Of Roadblocks by JKisOK(m): 1:57pm On Jun 13, 2017
Customs boss restates ban on roadblocks
March 4, 2015

THE Comptroller-General, Nigeria Customs Service, Alhaji Dikko Abdullahi, has restated that the ban on roadblocks and checkpoints by men of the service in the hinterland within the country is still in force.
Abdullahi restated this when he received the Managing Director of News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Mr. Ima Niboro, on Tuesday in Abuja.
He said officers of the service could only intercept vehicles in the hinterland based on credible information, either that the vehicle carried contraband or smuggled goods.
He restated his stand on banning of roadblocks because “it is not dignified and it is not in our character to mount roadblocks in the hinterland.
“Our job is at the border; it is 40 kilometres radius within the border area where our officers are allowed to mount road blocks to check whatever goods that are brought into the country.
