We Impounded 15 SUVs Belonging To A Sitting Governor For Evading Payment – Customs

The Public Relations Officer, Nigeria Customs Service, Mr. Wale Adeniyi, has confirmed that they indeed impounded some SUVs and the affected vehicles had remained under NCS custody because duty was not paid on them.

Adeniyi stated, “There are no separate laws for top government officials or highly-placed Nigerians. The laws are the same for everybody and the laws specify that all imported vehicles attract duty. If duty was not paid, the vehicles cannot be released.”

He, however, added that if the owners paid the required duty, the SUVs would be released.

On the 1,500 vehicles found in the premises of Volkswagen by the senate committee, Adeniyi said, “I do not have details of that development.”
