In a major shakeup of the Nigeria Customs Service, the Comptroller-General of Customs, Col. Hameed Ibrahim Ali (rtd) has approved the redeployment of 48 Comptrollers of Customs.

The redeployment which is in line with the ongoing reforms of the Service moved Comptroller Madugu, M.J from Sokoto/Kebbi/Zamfara to Ogun Command, Comptroller Udo-aka, E.A from Investigation to Oyo/Osun Command and Compt. Isiyaku, K from Tariff and Trade to Port Harcourt 1 among others.

A statement from Joseph Attah, Customs spokesman said, similarly, the Comptroller-General’s Compliance team has been disbanded and a new team reconstituted.

While effecting these changes, the CGC expressed his determination to strategically reposition the Service as a crucial contributor to the success story of the nation.

The CGC called on all stakeholders to support the Service by being compliant as well as provide needed information for the Operatives to nip smuggling activities in the bud.
