Battle against Smugglers intensifies as Ogun Customs gets new Area Controller


The battle against smugglers in Ogun State will now be intensified as a Comptroller of Customs, Peter Chado Kolo, took over as the new
Area Controller of Ogun 1 Area Command of the Nigeria Customs Service.

Kolo took over the mantle of leadership of the Area Command on Wednesday, from Michael Agbara, who spent over two years in the saddle.

Speaking during the handing over ceremony, the new Controller commended his predecessor for his giant strides in anti-smuggling activities and the successes recorded so far.

Kolo however warned smugglers and anyone with criminal tendency to desist from any nefarious activity as tough times awaits them.

He urged officers and men of the Command to double their efforts in order to sustain the fight against smuggling beyond the success achieved by his predecessors.

Kolo also called for high level of compliance to Nigeria Customs Service procedures and fiscal policies among the officers and trading stakeholders alike.

He further admonished the officers on the need to be disciplined in their conduct during the discharge of their statutory responsibilities.

He also directed all officers to be diligent and abide by the rules of engagement while relating with the public.

The new Controller, however, appealed to the stakeholders including other security agencies to cooperate with him and support his administration.

He promised to consolidate on the existing synergy between the command and other security agencies.

While assuring members of the trading community of his maximum cooperation for legitimate trade, the Controller declared that he would maintain the administrative style and standard left behind by his predecessor.

In his remark, the former Area Controller, Agbara solicited for maximum cooperation for the new Controller, thanking officers and men of the command for giving him support while serving as Area Controller.
