Revenue peaks as Customs seize ammo, marijuana in Rivers

The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) at the Port Harcourt Court Area 11 Command handed over a pistol, 9mm ammunition, and two suspects to the Nigeria Police following an interception.

Additionally, between January and October, the command reported a revenue generation of over N246 billion.

Addressing newsmen at the command’s corporate office in Onne, Rivers, the Command’s Comptroller, Baba Imam, attributed these accomplishments to the revitalized mindset instilled through continuous training of officers.

This, along with the provision of adequate logistics and incentives to the service, contributed to their success.
