L-R: Compt Kayode Kolade, Kehinde Ejibunu and Chedi Wada

The management of the Nigeria Customs Service has carried out a major shake-up in the service with the removal of some powerful Area Controllers and their subsequent transfer to Customs Headquarters Abuja.

Affected in the reshuffling is Comptrollers Hussein Ejibunu of Federal Operations Unit (FOU) Zone A, Lagos, Compt Kayode Kolade from FOU Zone C in Owerri and Compt Chedi Wada of FOU Zone B in Kaduna.

Leading the pack of the new officers at the commands are the resourceful Comptroller Ahmadu Bello Shuaibu who has been moved to the Federal Operations Unit, zone B, Kaduna, while Compt Oladeji takes charge at the Federal Operations Unit (FOU), Zone ‘A’, where Ejibunu no doubt has left an indelible mark in the prosecution of the anti-smuggling war, raking in seizures running into billions of naira in the two and half years he held sway.

Compt Igbadi MIC will try to wear the big shoes left behind by the anti-smuggling Czar –Comptroller Kayode Kolade whose record at the FOU, Owerri is unprecedented inspite of his short stint at the zone. Compt Salefu will be heading to FOU Zone D, while Compt Adegbite will be superintending at the PTML Command as the new boss.

Compt Ojo will be calling the shots at Ogun I, Idiroko, while Compt M.I Awe will replace the anti-smuggling and revenue Chief, Compt M.S Yusuf at the Murtala Muhammed Airport Command (MMAC).

Compt Bamisaye will be at the saddle at Western Marine Command as Compt Babandede proceeds to Onne Command in Rivers State to replace Imam who will now be in charge of Import and Export at the Headquarters. Also, Compt Luka will be heading to Imo/Abia Command as the Area Controller. Most of the officers affected have been signing their staff orders in Abuja in readiness to take over in their new Commands next week.
