Nigerian Customs Service, NCS, is set to relieve another 400 officers from its cadre.
Reasons for the development include corruption, insubordination, indiscipline and absenteeism, Vanguard reports.
Some of the officers pencilled allegedly flouted re-deployment directives as well as influenced their promotion even when they were not due to be promoted.
They were said to have refused to report at their new postings and instead obtained notes from legislators, who lobbied customs management to stop such re-deployment.
Last week, five Deputy Comptrollers-General of the Nigerian Customs Service, NCS, voluntary retired, an occurrence regarded as the first in the service’s history.
Others officers were also shown the exit door on account of age and years of service in what was described as ‘re-organisation’.
