Crisis in Nigeria Customs over leaked names of sacked officers | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

The headquarters of the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) is currently in crisis over the leakage of the list containing the names and ranks of the sacked senior and junior officers.

Findings have revealed that the Comptroller General of the NCS, Col. Hameed Alli (Rtd) is angry with the leak and has threatened to deal with whoever is behind the document leakage.

An impeccable source in the NCS told Nigerian Tribune that: “The list of sacked Customs officers, their names and rank was already online as early as in the morning of Monday. How it got there, nobody can actually explain. The CG is currently furious and has vowed to deal ruthlessly with whoever is behind the leak.

“It is not part of Customs tradition to release names of sacked officers, particularly when they have been involved in gross misconduct that includes financial misappropriation".

When contacted on the issue, the NCS Spokesman, Wale Adeniyi explained to Nigerian Tribune that the NCS did not release the names of the sacked officers to the public.

In his words, “I don’t know who put the names of the sacked Customs officers online. I did not put it there. The NCS is not obliged to release the names of sacked officers. What we were asked to do was to put up a statement while all the affected officers were communicated individually.”

  1. This is the very reason Nigeria is not moving forward. What is wrong with making public the names of dismissed officers for wrong doing. If it's made public it will serve as a deterrent to others. Buhari pls looking into the matter.

    1. I wonder! What's wrong with naming and shaming them?
