Customs warns against false declaration of goods

The Nigeria Customs Ser­vice (NCS) on Thurs­day warned passengers against false declaration of their goods to avoid the incur­ring wrath of the law.

Mr Abutu Onoja, the Cus­toms Area Comptroller in charge of Kano and Jigawa Command, gave the warning in Kano, while receiving the executive members of an NGO, Hausawan Africa, in his office.

Onoja said that false declara­tion was an offence under Sec­tion 161 of the Customs and Ex­cise Management Act.

Earlier, Dr Abdulkadir Ko­guna, NGO President, called for the command’s support with the vigilante arm of the organisation known as “Agajin Hausawa Africa” in carrying out its duties in the state.He also called for collaboration with the association and the popu­lace through sharing of compe­tent information which he said would be treated with confiden­tiality.
