Female officers will have to go to work without their bags, as part of new security regulations

The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has banned its female employees from bringing handbags to the office.

An undated circular posted at the entrance of the Customs headquarters in Zone 3, Wuse, Abuja, on Tuesday directed all officers to comply with the directive immediately.

The circular also prohibits laptop bags from being taken into the building.

Visitors as well as members of staff are expected to remove their laptops from their bags before going into the building.

The circular did not give any reasons for the directive.

However, some officers, who did not want their names published, said it was part of new security regulations following recent bomb attacks in Abuja.

“Visitors and even employees coming into the Customs headquarters should expect enhanced security screening,” a Customs officer at the main entrance said.

Another circular posted at the entrance of the Customs headquarters directed all officers from other stations visiting the headquarters to be with the proper tags and identification.

It also directed all off-duty officers visiting the headquarters to be fully-dressed in their uniform.
