It is not an exaggeration to say that officials of the Nigerian Customs Service are corrupt. Customs officials are usually seen on major expressways extorting motorists, unfortunately, they do not mind whether the car is new or not. I witnessed an instance where they stopped a car along the Ijebu-Ode -Sagamu Road and charged the driver money because his car was new. Even after he had presented all the necessary documents.
The government should take drastic action to curb the excesses of the corrupt customs officials.
