Customs raise alarm as Oyo community allegedly shield smugglers



The Comptroller of the Oyo / Osun Command of the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS), Mr. Abdullahi Zulkifli, raised the alarm about the attitude of the residents of Kisi to prevent the men of the commando from arresting the traffickers.

Zulkifli, who provoked this alarm on Wednesday, regretted that residents of the Kisi, Oke-Ogun, Oyo state areas prevented the service of smugglers.

He said that the fight against the activities of the smugglers has been facing serious challenges in the areas of Kisi, Oke-Ogun, in the state of Oyo, due to the lack of cooperation of the residents.

Zulkifli made the call during a courtesy visit to Governor Seyi Makinde in the office of the Agodi Secretariat.

The head of Customs pointed out the challenges faced by officials operating in the Kisi-Kwara state axis, which is known to be a route for the movement of several goods.

He urged Makinde to help investigate why Customs officers could not operate in Kisi while other security agents do.

He said: “There is a particular place in the state of Oyo that has rejected only access to the Customs and that is Kisi. All the other agencies are there, but they even refused us a small place to stay in Kisi.

“This place is very close to the state of Kwara, sometimes we are called to say that there is movement of things from Kisi to Kwara, but we can not go there, for the reasons best known to them, they know why they do not want us to be there.

“For a long time, all the other agencies are there in Kisi. I’m not saying I’m in the bush, it’s not a border area. Even Saki is not a border area, Igbeti is not a border area but they are linked to the main border area,

which is a little thick. There are many routes. No matter its strength, it can not cover all existing routes, but there are points where they are.

“We complain about the hostilities in some of the border areas, which is almost normal throughout the country because what we are doing to stop us have been their habits and business.

But we are here to enforce the law and make sure that contraband is reduced and to raise the maximum income. ” However, he said that Customs remained undeterred and will continue to collaborate with other security agencies to stop suspicious movements throughout the state.

Makinde said the state intended to have an integrated security architecture and make the state’s joint security task force, “Operation Explosion,” more effective, especially in border areas.
