At least 721 Nigeria Customs Service officers in Kano State have collected assets declaration form from the Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB.
The Comptroller-General of the Service, Hameed Ali, had recently directed all customs officers to declare their assets within two weeks.
The Director of the CCB in Kano, Umar Saulawa, disclosed the collection of the forms in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kano on Wednesday.
Mr. Saulawa said of the number, 95 officers were from the Nigeria Customs Training School, Kano.
He added that of the 721 officers that collected the form, only 100 officers returned their completed forms.
He disclosed that the agency also issued assets declaration forms to five army officers in the state.
The director said the bureau would conduct orientation programme for army officers on Thursday on how to complete the assets declaration form.
He, however, called on all customs officers who have yet to return the completed forms to do so before the expiration of the stipulated period.
