NCS Discontinues Auction Of Seized Food Items Over Stampede



The Nigeria Customs Service has announced it would suspend the auctioning of seized food items to Nigerians.

This development comes after reports of stampedes which claimed lives at Nigeria Customs Service Old Zonal Headquarters in Yaba, Lagos State.

Customs made this known in a statement on Monday by its Spokesman, Abdullahi Maiwada.

“Considering the recent unfortunate event, we regrettably announce the suspension of this exercise until we establish what transpired on Friday, 23 February 2024,” NCS announced.

“This should help us to properly articulate more robust and comprehensive action that will not defeat the noble intention,” the statement read in part.

It would be recalled that Customs auctioned seized food items to cushion the hardship in the country, with the exercise commencing last Friday.
