The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has disclosed its willingness to deploy drones at the Seme border in Lagos state for effective patrol and to check smuggling activities.

Modupe Aremu, NCS zone A coordinator and an assistant comptroller-general (ACG), made this known on Monday, during a working visit to the Seme area command.

She said border management surveillance will be done electronically through the use of drones to ensure that there is aerial overview of the border.

Aremu said: “Seme command visit is the end of my tour in zone A, and I must commend all the commands. They account for over 80 percent revenue collection by the NCS and so they should keep up the good work,”

“With the tour of all commands, I have seen that all the officers are doing well but they can do better. And I am telling them that they should expect impromptu visits from the zonal coordinator. So, they should not relax on the job.

“Also, e-customs N300 billion contract, that is, end-to-end automation that is about to kick-off, is about information and communication technology connectivity. When it comes on board, we are going to have electronic signature, drones patrolling the border.”
