Ogun Customs’ rakes in N92.4 billion in Second Quarter of 2024


The Ogun I Area Command of the Nigeria Customs Service says it generated a revenue of N92.4 billion in the second quarter of 2024, which represents a 52.46% increase compared to the same period in 2023.

Reeling out the score card of the command in the period under review, Comptroller James Ojo, the Customs Area Controller, said the command also made significant seizures of prohibited goods.

The prohibited goods he said include cannabis sativa, foreign-used pneumatic tyres, frozen poultry products, and other items with a Duty Paid Value (DPV) of N770.7 million.

Also he added that the command’s anti-smuggling activities led to the interception of 219 sacks and 1,725 parcels of cannabis sativa, 940 rounds of live ammunition, 44,466 litres of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), and other items.

Comptroller Ojo linked the command’s outstanding performance to the dedication and professionalism of its officers and men, as well as the support of traditional rulers and security agencies in the state.

He equally lauded the Comptroller General of Customs, Bashir Adeniyi, for his leadership and enabling support, which he said served as the tonic that enhanced the command’s capabilities and propelling its achievements.

These achievements serve as a proof to the command’s commitment to the economic growth and development of Nigeria, and uphold the integrity of the country’s borders
