The Nigerian Customs Services has deactivated Five Star Logistics Limited terminal from its portal at the Tin Can Island port over N97.3 million debt.
This was disclosed by the Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) on Friday and confirmed by the Customs Service in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria.
The Customs Service stated that the only condition for unblocking their access is the payment of the unpaid assessment.
The acting president of the Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA), Dr Kayode Farinto said, “It has been brought to the notice of the National Executive Committee (NECOM) that our members are unable to exit the already released vehicles and cargoes from the Five Star Logistics.
“This is because the terminal operator has been deactivated from the Customs portal as a result of unpaid assessment running into millions of naira.
He urged members to be calm and law-abiding and to keep the receipts of all payments during this period.
Mr Uche Ejesieme, the Public Relations Officer, TinCan Island Port command confirmed that the terminal was owing up to N97.3 million unpaid assessment.
