Customs invade Abuja hotel, order guests to pay import duty on cars

 

Armed Nigeria Customs Service operatives today invaded the Fraiser Suites located at the Central Business District in Abuja harassing guests to pay duty on their expensive cars. 

It was gathered that the Customs operatives surrounded the hotel and ordered owners of exotic and expensive cars in the hotel to come out, forcing some sleeping guests to wake up.

Sources within the hotel said the officers threatened to confiscate their vehicles if the owners could not provide proof of evidence of payment of duty.

The source said foreign diplomats and other guests lodged in the hotel were not allowed to go out as the operatives restricted movement on the premises of the hotel.
