Confusion as Buhari orders customs to auction cars imported by Rochas
The Comptroller-General of Customs, retired Col. Hameed Ali, says the service would auction seized vehicles belonging to the Imo Government.
Ali made the revelation during an oversight visit by the Senate Committee on Customs on Tuesday in Abuja.
According to him, many cars on Nigerian roads use fake customs papers, adding that most of the cars were smuggled.
“We (customs) are giving Nigerians with fake customs papers grace to pay their duty or risk confiscation of their vehicles.
“I am waiting for President Muhammed Buhari to give me the permission to ban importation of cars through land borders to curb smuggling”, he said.
