Ohaneze to FG: Nigerian Customs sabotaging Igbo businesses

…Wants CGC probed

The Ohaneze Youth Council has raised the alarm over the ongoing, relentless extortion and exploitation of Igbo traders and businessmen in the country particularly Lagos state by corrupt officials of the Nigerian Customs Service.

Embittered by the rampant extortion, intimidation and harassment of businessmen going about their legitimate businesses, the Ohaneze Youth Council, led by Comrade Igboayaka O. Igboayaka, has also called on President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Assembly to investigate the activities of the Comptroller-General of Customs, Col. Hameed Ali (rtd) and his field officials in the Lagos area over their alleged bid to strangulate Igbo businesses.

He group regretted the rot that has eaten deep into the very fabric of the Nigerian Customs Service whose officials no longer hide their inclination to extortion and corruption perpetrated especially against Igbo traders doing legitimate business.

According to statement issued by the group, Ohaneze Youth Council alleged that through verified complaints, officials of the Customs Service has continued to request some undue and illegal levies from Igbo importers as a condition for clearing goods.

“They also stop Igbo traders on the roadways and demand illegal fees. They employ the use of coercion, threats, closure of shops and seizure of goods, to unlawfully extract money from their victims,” the statement read.

Lol a Yoruba man In kwara that own a big rice farm and produces rice got his rice warehouse shut down by custom, the man protested
Yorubas didn't wail
In Benin republic, most of the farms that border Lagos and Ogun and Oyo are owned by yorubas who smuggle the produce into Nigeria
Now that the border has been closed,most of those farm produce are rotting away especially tomatoes
These news were on nairaland if u guys are doubting me
Did any yoruba person cry?

Nigerian customs have made several Northerners poor due to the clamp down on smuggling, and the fact that they render services to the smugglers. Most importantly the up coming car dealers that can't afford to pay duty on vehicles they import.

Here we go again. Alarmists have come with their petty conspiracy theory.

Ipob Modus Operandi: engage in sharp practices, get caught then run to the media to scream marginalisation.

Smuggle food, cars and hard drugs. Everything is bizinesi! Okey is a sharp boy. I di sharpu.

Is it that difficult for you to do things right? By now, even the UN would be tired of you guys crying wolf after committing crime.

See, the truth is that the people who import the most are traders. They are mainly igbos. They then have to transport their goods to various places for distribution all over the country to make it available to the end users.

Then while clearing, transporting and storing they have many bad encounters with the custom officers.

They have done well by calling the attention of the government on the perceived illegal activities of some Nigerian custom officials.

High tariffs walls are the problem. Customs are just exploiting it. If import duty rates were low, there'd be no problem.

Igbo's, all are affected except that you are affected more as you guys trade a lot. It is nothing personal; its strictly business

What business? Are you saying igbos are smugglers? Must everything be trivialized and tribalized? The very closure of the borders is the reason rice farmers in Anambra state are jubilant. Go and ask Coscharis farms.
