Nigeria Customs to impound unverified Private Jets
Written by crest887fm on June 22, 2021
Private jet owners risk having their airplanes impounded by the Nigeria Customs Service if they fail to verify their documents before July 6, 2021 when a month grace period would have expired.
The Public Relations Officer of NCS, Joseph Attah, disclosed this on Monday in Abuja at a media briefing to update the public on the ongoing audit of privately-owned aircraft operating in Nigeria.
It was gathered in May that the NCS directed all private aircraft owners in the country to present relevant importation clearance documents to the agency for verification.
Attah said, “Within two weeks into the 30 days’ verification period, only six owners of private aircraft have responded to the invitation, necessitating this update and reminder to those who have not responded, to do so in order to avoid possible detention of their aircraft.
