The Nigeria Customs Service(NCS) has raised the bar of war  against smuggling in the country by taking it  to  an intellectual realm with the forth coming presentation of the book titled: “Appraisal of the Crime of Smuggling in Nigeria” written by  Dr. Musa Omale, an Assistant Comptroller of Customs.

The book, which is billed for presentation on November, Thursday 3oth, 2017 at Rockview  Hotels, Abuja, will be unveiled by the Comptroller General of Customs (CGC), Col. Hameed Ali (rtd).

This is coming at a time smuggling has assumed a national concern  with the Federal Executive Council(FEC), the highest decision making body of the nation lamenting that the economy losses  a whopping $ 5 billion annually to Rice smuggling activities,only.

The book exposes various methods by which the crime of smuggling is perpetrated and identifies causes and effects of the crime while proffering  preventive and enforcement measures  to be adopted  by the service.

“The book makes the important discovery that  the Customs and Excise  Management Act(CEMA) which was promulgated since 1958 can hardly cope with the modern day sophistication and dimensions of smuggling. It highlights the challenges  bedeviling the operations of the Nigeria Customs Service which is the institution responsible for the enforcement of CEMA,” Ali noted in the forward.
