The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) said the land borders are not closed but that there is the heavy presence of security personnel policing the borders as part of the ongoing Exercise Swift Response operation.

The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Service, Deputy Comptroller Joseph Attah told Daily Trust yesterday that the land borders were not closed as alleged in some quarters.

He said: ‘The truth of the matter is that the border is not closed. What is happening is that people are seeing a higher security screening. People who feel they should be free to move in and out, and who may probably have been taking advantage of the porous borders, are now seeing security agencies, the manpower is boosted and every nook and cranny is definitely being policed.”

Attah noted that the Exercise Swift Response was a massive one that shows the presence of huge security personnel policing the borders.
