But if the headquaters look at the matter and it is beyond suspension, definitely he would be expelled""A petition was written against him by a fellow executive who is chairman of customs-agents relations committee, Mr. Martins Duru for; doing 'kelebe' work, sabotage, obtaining money under false pretence, and perjury""From his response we gathered that he committed the offence""He collected money under the pretence of clearing cargoes but he disappears. Severally, he has been accused of the same offence. This is not what NAGAFF stands for and we would never condone such act"The letter of disclaimer written by the association was addressed to all terminal operators, shipping companies, stevedoring companies, Nigerian Ports Authority and the Nigeria Customs Service at Tin Can port.
