House of representatives probes customs

The House of Representatives Ad Hoc Committee on the Volume of Fuel Consumed Daily in Nigeria has asked the Nigeria Customs Service to provide details of Premium Motor Spirit (petrol) seized and auctioned.


The Comptroller-General of the NCS, Col. Hameed Ali (retd.), had appeared before the committee on Wednesday, where he explained that the service needed a court order to auction other petroleum products except petrol.


Ali, who was represented by the Deputy Comptroller-General (Enforcement, Investigation, and Inspection), Etim Edorhe, disclosed this when reacting to questions bothering on imported petroleum products being smuggled to neighbouring countries.
