BUSTED! Two Customs Officers Filmed Demanding Bribes At Port Harcourt Airport (Video)

A video showing two officials of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) demanding bribes from Nigerians has been uploaded on video-sharing website, YouTube. Titled ‘Corruption Report Nigeria’ and published on Monday, the scene of the alleged crime is the Port Harcourt airport in Port Harcourt, capital of Rivers state. A hidden camera with which the act was filmed showed two Customs officers seated on either side of a desk, while three people stood sideways, against the wall. The two officers inspect some papers; and one of them, raising his voice at one of the three people in the room, says: “Where the thing now? E dey hard you to bring?”

After counting what looked like eight N1,000 notes, the officer returns it in annoyance, saying: “Take! Take!!!” probably because he saw it as being small. When the fellow refuses to collect the money, the officer squeezes it into his hands, and adds: “You’re not ready; anybody wey no wan cooperate, we go leave am.” The officer eventually walks out; but with the recording going blank for a few seconds, it was unclear exactly how much he left with.

This is not the first time the incidents of bribery and corruption have been exposed in the Customs.
