Customs suspends sale of seized food items over stampede


The Nigeria Customs Service has suspended the sale of seized food items to Nigerians.

The development comes after a stampede that claimed lives at Nigeria Customs Service Old Zonal Headquarters in Yaba, Lagos State, on Friday.

This was made known in a statement on Monday by Abdullahi Maiwada, a spokesperson for Customs.

News360 Info recalls that Customs had on February 20, 2024 said it would disposed seized food items to cushion the hardship in the country.


“Considering the recent unfortunate event, we regrettably announce the suspension of this exercise until we establish what transpired on Friday, 23 February 2024,” Nigeria Customs, however, announced on Monday.

This should help us to properly articulate more robust and comprehensive action that will not defeat the noble intention,” the statement partly reads.
