Written by thereachfm on March 7, 2019
The Special Task Force on Illegal Importation, South West Zone of the Importers Association of Nigeria (IMAN), said it has sealed five warehouses said to belong to certain Chinese firms between January and February this year.
The Task Force said they were sealed over alleged illegal and unapproved activities, not operating in consonance with due regulations as well as lack of permits by the Federal Government.
IMAN also disclosed that a total of ten containers of 6 x 20ft and 4x40ft with various infractions ranging from concealment to goods smuggled into the country were intercepted from various parts of Lagos State.
The Chief Operating Officer, Special Taskforce, South West Zone, Prosper Okolo, who made this known, said some of the affected warehouses were found to have contravened import laws bordering on duty infractions.
Okolo further appealed to all security agencies, especially those involved in Imports, exports and other regulatory functions to collaborate with the association.
