EFCC, Nigerian Customs Seek Working Relationship for Corruption-free Society


The Sokoto Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has called for increased collaboration with the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) to ensure a corruption-free society.

This appeal was made in a statement issued to journalists in Sokoto by the Public Relations Officer of the NCS Sokoto/Zamfara Area Command, Mr Abdullahi Tsafe.

Tsafe quoted the EFCC Zonal Director, Mr Nwanneka Nwokike, who made the remark during a visit to the NCS Area Command headquarters in Sokoto.

The Zonal Director described the existing working relationship between the two organisations as cordial, aimed at achieving their respective statutory mandates.

“EFCC shares intelligent gathering and other activities against corruption; therefore, the collaboration should be sustained for maximum benefit. My visit is to enable the anti-graft agency to deliberate with the NCS on how to collectively reduce crimes within our respective jurisdictions,” the director stated.

Responding, the Area Controller, Kamal Muhammad, assured the EFCC of the NCS’s readiness to sustain the long-standing synergy between the two agencies.

The Controller explained that the NCS’s mandates included revenue generation, trade facilitation, and curbing smuggling.

He noted that, as gatekeepers of the nation’s borders, the NCS collaborates with the EFCC in its fight against financial crimes, leading to numerous arrests.

Muhammad added that the Nigerian Customs Service has been at the forefront of supporting the EFCC in its fight against money laundering, financial fraud, embezzlement, human trafficking, piracy, drug trafficking, and terrorism.
