Borders To Remain Closed Indefinitely - Hameed Ali (video) by Fariq: 3:31pm On Sep 30
The Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Hameed Ali, has decried the spate of smuggling across the country calling for concerted efforts in curbing the menace.

Speaking to journalists during his operational visit to Idiroko border in Ogun State, Ali noted that said the nation’s border posts will remain closed indefinitely until such a time movement of goods and persons as established by Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) protocol are strictly adhered to.

The Customs boss also dismissed some insinuations that the closure was meant to be in force within 28 days.

He explained that decision was taken to checkmate the proliferation of firearms, importation of contraband and other illegal activities by unpatriotic individuals along the land borders.

“Smuggling is an offence; many of you may not accept it that smuggling is an offence. Any illicit thing you bring into this country has a way the consequences on our economy, security and well-being.

“We have gotten to a point whereby we must do something drastic in order to stop this. Otherwise, we will be finished,” he said.

Speaking further, Ali explained that criminals have been better equipped following the smuggling of weapons into the country.

He added, “Kidnapping, banditry is everywhere. Those doing that is not because they are stronger than me and you, but because they have guns in their hands. If it is man to man, many of them will not be on the streets.”
