Customs Recovers Auctioned NIPP Equipment

This Day
2 November 2011

Abuja — Barely seven days after the Senate directed it to recover the 22 containers of National Independent Power Project (NIPP) equipment allegedly auctioned illegally; the Nigerian Customs Service yesterday announced the recovery of 15.

Customs Comptroller General, Alhaji Abdullahi Dikko, told the Senate Committee on Power during an interactive session that the remaining seven containers would be recovered by Friday.

The committee had last Tuesday ordered the service to retrieve, within seven days all the 22 containers, estimated at over $5.3billion, belonging to the NIPP and the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) it was said to have auctioned.
