Border Closure: Customs To Close Shops Selling Foreign Rice

The Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) has issued a warning to shop owners that are still selling foreign rice despite the closure of land borders across the country.

This warning was issued by customs area comptroller in charge of Kano/Jigawa, Ahmed Nasir who made it known via a letter with reference number NCS/KAN/053/S.28 and dated February 17, 2020.

Ahmed Nasir said the aim of the border closure is to put an end to smuggling activities across the country.

“In our effort to suppress smuggling, the Nigerian Customs Service Kano/Jigawa area command deemed it fit to write and seek for your cooperation to stop patronising foreign rice and other prohibited items in your supermarket/shops to avoid being closed by customs operatives,” the statement read.
