Lagos - The Nigeria Postal Services (NIPOST) has closed down a prominent courier company, Efosa Express Limited, for operating illegally.
The NIPOST Regulatory Department, led by Senior Assistant Postmaster, Simon Emeje, shut down the Lagos-based firm as part of efforts to rid the industry of unregistered postal companies.
"We have to understand this industry. We have quacks and unlicensed courier companies that are operating in Nigeria and innocent Nigerians do not know what is happening," he said after the exercise.
Emeje said NIPOST would probe more companies in the sector that were not authorised to operate.
"The Regulatory Department has a number of unauthorized operators on its list and would not relent in the efforts to rid the sector of quackery,"
