Smuggling: Customs seeks improved synergy with sister security agenciesSmuggling: Customs seeks improved synergy with sister security agencies

The Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) has sought for improved synergy among sister security agencies in the country towards ensuring that smuggling activities are brought to the minimal level.

The NCS Assistant Controller General (ACG) in charge of Zone ‘A’, Aminu Dahiru, stated this while addressing officers and men of the command at the command’s office in Ojofin, Ipokia Local Government of Ogun state.

The ACG, who is on duty tour of the Ogun Area Command of the service, insisted that the menace of smuggling requires a combined effort to be decimated.

Dahiru warned that the activities of smugglers portend great danger for the Nigerian state if not urgently checked.

According to him, “Smuggling is a menace to the nation and it is our collective responsibility to fight it. It requires a lot of logistics, personnel, synergy and cooperation.

“But the truth of the matter is that even if you have all it takes in the area of logistics, a single organisation cannot fight it. No matter how equipped you are.

“In essence, we need each other to end it. More so, we have to operate in a hostile environment as this. We have to talk to local people and make them realise the dangers associated to smuggling”.

“This is because a smuggler can bring in anything that is dangerous like arms and ammunition. From the onset, the intention is not good because there are things that can’t be imported”.

He, however, requested for renewed patriotism on the part of the officers and men of the command, especially those operating at the hinterlands.

He said, “another is that it benefits individual and not the country. Duty paid on goods goes to the nation’s account but the money made from smuggling goes into the private account of the individual.

“In a nutshell, we have to have that patriotism required by law in each and every one of us. We must come together to be on the side of the state. If we don’t do that, we are as bad as the smugglers.

“I choose this pace to visit because of its significance. One is because of the convergence of the sister security agencies here. It shows there’s is peace and understand and that will assist us to fight any war, be it physical or psychological”.

“Your duties are supported by law while the smuggler is on his own. I urge you to work together because the goal is almost the same. We are looking for peace and revenue because if there are revenue and no peace, then the revenue becomes irrelevant. For any progress in human endeavour, there must be peace.

“Never look down on your colleague. There’s no agency that is not important. We should do our work collectively and intelligently.
