Men of Nigeria Customs leveraging stoppage of payment of duties on old vehicles to fleece Nigerians

Customs, Excise and Service Tax | Nigeria Customs Service (NCS)
Reported on Tue May 30 2017 from Oyo, Anonymous Reporter

On 30 May 2017, men of Nigerian Customs (purportedly Team C - none had their name tag on), Oyo/Osun command impounded a car I bought from someone who has used it in Nigeria for two years on the basis that the duty paper was fake. I was asked to pay a bribe of N2m or lose the car because according to them: - the car is worth 7m - I won't be allowed to pay the duty because the portal for paying duty on such cars was closed the previous week. The said car - a Mercedes Benz 2008 model is still with them since I refused to negotiate the N2m bribe with them. No one is giving me the opportunity to pay the duty.

This is outrageous and we are very thankful for you voicing this matter. Please lodge a formal complaint with the police for this extortion and theft as customs officers have essentially stolen your vehicle. Go to http://npf.gov.ng/complaint/ to lodge a formal complaint!


Thank you, Meghan. Is the link you provided not just for cases pertaining to the men of NPF? I will do just that all the same. No harm in trying. Thanks for this.
