The Nigeria Customs Service (NSC) Katsina Area Command claims to have generated N935 million in revenue in 2022, exceeding its monthly target of N60.84 million.

The Command also revealed that it apprehended ten people during the review period, some of them are being tried at the federal high court and others who have been given administrative bail.

However, the Command stated that two of its officers were murdered in the course of duty during the time under consideration.

Mr Wada Chedi, the command’s controller, who has now been redeployed to Port Harcourt, made the announcement during a thanksgiving and send-off ceremony on Wednesday.

In terms of export trade facilitation, Chedi stated that the command recorded a FOB value of N4.42 billion for non-oil commodities totaling 69,436.77 metric tons exported via the Jibia-Magama border station.

According to Chedi, the command also made 379 arrests, 258 of which were converted to seizures following a thorough investigation, totaling N144.75 million in Duty Paid Value (DPV).

According to Chedi, the commodities confiscated during the review period include foreign vegetable oil, foreign spaghetti, second-hand apparel, and cars used to transport the illicit items.

The outgoing controller, on the other hand, urged stakeholders to extend to the incoming controller the same level of cooperation that he received while monitoring the business of the Katsina command.

During the thankfulness and farewell ceremony, which was attended by the leaders of sister security agencies, prizes were given to exceptional customs personnel and partners.

Earlier, Aminu Masari, the state’s Senior Special Adviser on Security Matters, who represented Katsina State Governor, expressed appreciation for the degree of cooperation enjoyed by security services and the state administration, stressing that the synergy accounts for the state’s relative tranquility.
