Corrupt officials will be sent to 10years jail term- Customs boss

The Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs, Hameed Ali has admonished customs officers to desist from all form of corrupt practices as anyone of them caught will be jailed for 10 years as stipulated by law.
Ali gave the warning while speaking with some officers during his visit to Sokoto/Zamfara/Kebbi Area Command today.

    “The minimum jail term for corrupt officers is five years, but I will make sure that any officer found to be corrupt gets the maximum jail term of 10 years. This is to serve as a deterrent to any officer who finds himself in the Customs to make money and not to earn money. I am not saying that there are no good, incorruptible officers in the service, but there are few bad eggs who are giving the service a bad name,” he said.
