LAND BORDER





Goods can no longer enter Nigeria through land borders

The Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) says no item can be imported or exported through the nation’s land borders.

Hameed Ali, comptroller-general of NCS, said this at a press conference in Abuja on Monday.

He said the measure would enable security agencies to be able to scan the goods entering the country.

Ali said for now, goods can only enter the country through the air and sea ports, where they can undergo thorough scanning and certified fit for consumption.

“We hope that by the time we get to the end of this exercise, we would have agreed with our neighbours on the type of goods that should enter and exit our country,” he said.

“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 boarders where we have scanners to verify the kind of goods and how healthy to our people can be conducted.”
