Idiroko border remains shut – Customs

Published

on

The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Ogun 1 Area Command, has said the Idiroko international border remains shut.

Idiroko border in Ipokia Local Government area of Ogun State is linking Nigeria to Benin Republic, via Igolo.

Before the closure of the nation’s land borders in 2019 by the Federal Government, the border used to be a beehive of activities.

DAILY POST reports that the area has since become desolate, dry and deserted, having negative effects on people whose livelihoods depend on activities at the border.

However, DAILY POST reports that the Idiroko border has remained under lock and key even as of January 14, 2021.
