Customs uncovers 12 tax-evading factories in Ogun


The monitoring unit of the Nigeria Customs Services (NCS) in Ogun II Area Command, Abeokuta, Ogun State, said it uncovered 12 factories which have been allegedly operating for a period without paying the prerequisite excise duties.

The command also said it generated the sum of N12.8 billion as revenue in the first half of the year.

Customs Area Controller, Ogun Area II Command, Comptroller Bisi Alade, disclosed these while speaking with journalists at a press conference held in Abeokuta on Thursday.

Alade said the 12 factories comprised of 11 manufacturing companies and one bonded terminal.

While soliciting the cooperation of the various factories under the command on the timely payment of appropriate excise duties, Alade reiterated that the command would continue to dialogue and sensitise members of the business communities in Ogun State on the need to comply with the government’s fiscal policies.
