The Nigerian Customs Service has reportedly impounded 10 of E-Money’s luxury vehicles.
The Federal Operations Unit, FOU, Zone A, Nigeria Customs Service, has impounded 10 luxury vehicles belonging to E-Money, popular music promoter and singer KCee’s brother, over under-payment of duty on the vehicles.
The vehicles, said to have been cleared by officers and men of Apapa Customs Command, were intercepted by officials of FOU, following a tip-off about the value of duty paid on them.
A source at Federal Operations Unit, FOU, Zone A, Nigeria Customs Service confirmed the seizure to newsmen, explaining that E-Money himself had visited the Unit to try and take back custody of the vehicles, but that FOU leadership had insisted on complete payment of duty before the vehicles can be released to him.
It was also gathered that E-Money paid over N6 million duty and the vehicles released to him. This was confirmed by the Customs Area Controller, CAC, Garba Mohammed, who said: “We have released the vehicles to him. He came and paid over N6 million. I think about N6.7 million or thereabouts.”
