NIPOST promises to intercept Items that undermine national security


The Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST) has assured Nigerians of its commitment to intercept every illegal item that passes through the mail processing centre at the international airport, especially items that could undermine national security.

Postmaster General of the federation, Bisi Adegbuyi, who gave the assurance on the occasion of the official handing over of elephant tusks that were intercepted by NIPOST and the Nigerian Customs, to the Director General, National Environmental Standards and Regulations Enforcement Agency (NESREA), in Lagos recently, said NIPOST would continue to collaborate with the Nigerian Customs to achieve the feat.

“The effects of globalization, which has invariably improved postal networking, calls for precautions thereby warranting spirited efforts to be made to prevent concealment of dangerous items in parcels which have the tendency of compromising national, regional and global security” he said.
