Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has reiterated its resolve to fight fuel smuggling through the creeks and land borders.

The Service described perpetrators of act of smuggling as economic saboteurs and enemies of the country.

Aminu Dahiru, Assistant Comptroller General and Zonal Coordinator in charge of Zone A, of the Service said this in Lagos while disclosing the service efforts at preventing smuggling of Premium Motor Spirit and Kerosene.

He said Zone A is ready to surpass the N851 billion revenue it collected in 2017,  while ensuring that all violators of various customs laws were bought to book.

According to the Customs boss, a total of 36 cases were taken to courts for various customs offences.

Dahiru who oversees customs in the South West, said the service within Zone A made a seizure of 76,000 liters of PMS in January 2018 which it auctioned to members of the public following an approval from the Controller General of Customs.

He said foreigners from neighbouring countries are encouraging the smuggling of PMS, while expressing that the activities of fuel stations around border areas should be closely monitored as they are the nearest outlets to get the products for movement out from the country.

‘’Petroleum products smugglers are being encouraged from outside the country to smuggle something that is for our consumption as citizens of Nigeria.”
