The Comptroller-General of Nigeria Custom Service, Col. Hameed Ali (rtd), has advocated the death sentence for any Custom officer found to have indulged in stealing public fund or any corrupt practice.
Speaking in Kano while addressing officers and men of the service in continuation of his tour of formations under Kano/Jigawa Command on Wednesday, Ali said that though the law does not permit such stiff penalty, if he had his way, corrupt officers who steal government money “should be shot.”
“Many of us are in the service not because we want to serve but because of what we can make out of it. Anybody that goes contrary to the laws will be showed the way out. There will be no room for indiscipline in the system, you must be disciplined and that is why we are called para-military. If you are not disciplined, forget it because we stand on discipline”.
