ALLEGED MISCONDUCT: NCS TO INVESTIGATE  OFFICER IN VIRAL VIDEO

The Nigeria Customs Service says it’s  investigating an incident at Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos, where an officer was observed soliciting ₦5000 bribe from a passenger. This behavior has rightfully raised public concern, and we are committed to ensuring full accountability.
The Service National Public Relations Officer Abdullahi Maiwada in a statement stated that  Preliminary investigation revealed that the incident transpired at New Terminal, within the departure hall of Murtala Mohammed International Airport Lagos, and was captured on video by the involved passenger.
The recording reveals an inappropriate request for ₦5000 in exchange for expeditious processing of customs procedures.
” We wish to confirm that the Officer implicated is indeed a member of the Nigeria Customs Service, properly assigned to the Murtala Mohammed International Airport Area Command”
The NCS strongly condemns this unprofessional conduct and is dedicated to upholding the highest standards of professionalism. A comprehensive investigation is underway to scrutinize the incident thoroughly, and appropriate actions will be taken.
NCS therefore  encouraged passengers and the public to report any instances of misconduct or corruption promptly.
