Details behind the deadly skirmish between men of the Nigeria Customs Service and economic saboteurs known as smugglers have surfaced.
According to official communication…
On a faithful morning of Saturday 7th July, 2018 around 0900hours, The Officers and Men of Ogun Command yet received another form of hostility from criminals and economic saboteurs. They succeeded in abducting and inflicting life threatening injury to an Inspector of Customs Abdullahi Mohammad Kuso attached to NCS Ogun Command. They further set ablaze Customs patrol base at Papalanto close Lafarge Cement Company (pictures attached). Although he was later rescued by officers of the Command.
Full scale investigation is ongoing to fish out those who perpetuated this barbaric, cruel and inhumane aggression.
We therefore sound a note of warning to smugglers that Nigeria Customs Service Ogun Command will not relent in bringing to book economic saboteurs/criminals who often violently engage officers at various approved duty post, to the extent of inflicting injuries on officers, destroying Government properties, and constituting nuisance to the society.
