The planned sack of 66 officers of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) on drug addiction charges by the Comptroller General Hameed Ali (Rtd.) has come on the heels of renewed vigour to achieve his mandate to reform and restructure the Service.
Before now, stories of addiction to hard drugs by men of the Service had been shrouded in secrecy and termed as allegations while culprits were being protected by their superiors.
The CG was definitely not joking when he said his administration has zero tolerance for corruption. Officers in the ports who have refused to change their corrupt ways had better watch their backs, the CG’s hammer can’t wait to fall hard.
It is every day for the thief, one day for the owner.
