What is now known as the Nigeria Customs Service – a paramilitary organisation, could be said to have been established a little over a century ago when the British Colonial administration appointed Mr. T. A. Wall, in 1891, as the Director-General of Customs for the collection of inland Revenue in Niger Coast Protectorate.

This is the formalization of the duties which the Department had been performing under the Royal Niger Company under the leadership of the past Chief Executives.

The name Department of Customs and Excise emerged in 1922 when the first Comptroller of Customs and Excise, Federation of Nigeria was appointed. Towards the end of 1945, the Customs and Excise Preventive service was established under the leadership of Mr. Nicol – a Briton. This was made up of two divisions – Maritime and Preventive.

The maritime Division has the responsibility of collecting import and excise duties and other related functions while the Preventive Division was responsible for enforcement duties which included prevention of smuggling as well as arrest and prosecution of smugglers.

Decree No. 7 of 1970 granted additional powers with the definition of the membership of the Board.

By virtue of Decree No. 41 of 28th August 1975, all the powers that were hitherto conferred on the Chairman and Deputy Chairman of the Board were vested in the Director of Customs and Excise and his deputies.

Hitherto, the Department was operating as two parallel Services – Revenue (Technical) and Preventive (Enforcement). This parallel method of running the two services created serious conflicts and immense administrative problems. This seriously affected the overall efficiency and attitude of officers and men with the attendant negative impact on the image of the Department.

Thus on the 1st April, 1977 the first major reorganisation of the department took place. The present unified service of the Department of Customs and Excise was the result. The unification structured the Department into five main Directorates viz:

  • Customs Tariff and Trade;
  • Customs Enforcement Directorate;
  • Customs Investigation Directorate
  • Customs Inspection Directorate and
  • Customs Economic relations, Research; and Planning Directorate.

A new board headed by the Honourable minister of Finance was also re constituted. The Comptroller -General was assisted by 6 Deputy – Comptrollers- General, heading the Departments viz.

  • Finance, Administration and Technical Services.
  • Tarrif and Trade.
  • Excise and industrial incentives.
  • Enforcement and drugs.
  • Economic Relating Research and planning.
  • Investigation and Inspection.

The 6-zonal Administrative structure was also retained.
