The Federal Government has ordered the closure of the Nigerian border and has banned movement of goods into and outside the country.
Retired Col. Hameed Ali, Comptroller-General, Nigerian Customs Service, made the disclosure in Abuja in a joint press briefing on border patrol.
… For now, all goods, whether illicit or non-illicit, are banned from going and coming into Nigeria. Let me add that for the avoidance of doubt that we included all goods because all goods can equally come through our seaports.
For that reason, we have deemed it necessary for now that importers of such goods should go through our controlled borders, where we have scanners to verify the kind of goods and how healthy to our people they can be conducted. Hameed Ali – nairametrics.com
