STANDARD ORGANIZATION OF NIGERIA VOWS TO PROSECUTE IMPORTERS OF FALSELY DECLARED GOODS

The Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON) is to prosecute importers of falsely declared goods.

The regulatory agency said it discovered that some business men with their foreign collaborators falsely declare their goods at the point of entry in order to bring in fake and substandard goods into the country and evade duties and also bring counterfeit and fake goods into the country.

SON, Head of Monitoring and Compliance, Mr. BEDE OBAYI who gave the hint at the weekend, revealed that Golden Ring Mega Biz Ventures had been in their monitoring radar for months and traced how the company had severally and falsely imported brake linings, soldering iron as well as refrigerators.

He said the refrigerators were unbranded but with provision to brand them with popular names when cleared from the ports.

Other things found inside the 40 feet container refrigerators were LED products and television hangers valued at over N100million.
