Adamawa/Taraba customs command generates N145 million revenue

The Adamawa/Taraba Area Command of the Nigeria Customs Service said it generated N145.03million as revenue from January to November, 2017.
The Area Controller, Olutade Francis Adetoye, disclosed this to newsmen on Sunday in Yola, the Adamawa State capital.
Adetoye said that the command also made 43 seizure, amounting to a Duty Paid Value of N119.7 million.
He said the seized items included smuggled rice, vehicles, textiles and soap.
“The special focus on seizure of rice is to reinforce the Federal Government’s commitment to encouraging local production of rice, promote employment and stop dumping, among others,” Adetoye said.
The controller warned smugglers in the states to stop perpetrating their illegal acts as the service under the present leadership of its Comptroller General, Hameed Ali, had zero tolerance for smuggling.
