How Presidential Number Plates, Govt Institutions, Are Used To Smuggle Goods – Customs
The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), has alleged that smugglers use fake presidential number plates and other institutions of government to bring in goods especially vehicle into the country.
This was revealed by the Comptroller, NCS, Federal Operations Unit (FOU) Zone “B” in Kaduna State, Mr Chedi Wada while receiving the NAN Zonal Manager in the state.
“Customs will not relent and will continue to do its best by not allowing smugglers to use the old tactics of using the presidential number plates and other governmental institutions to smuggle luxurious vehicles into the country.
”This is one of the menaces we are having. It is saddening how vehicle smugglers are ridiculing the apex seat in the country by using presidential fake plate numbers using them on newly smuggled cars to deceive customs.”
“We are not happy with them, it is too bad for them to be playing with the presidency, that’s why we always put a heavy hammer on those using the presidency on false instances on smuggled vehicles.
“Let them respect the presidency, we must respect the presidency.”
