Customs Officers In Pursuit Of Smugglers ‘Kill Six’

By Ishaq Salami

Six people have allegedly been killed by men of the Nigerian Customs Service, NSC, while pursuing smugglers on Sunday evening at Oke-Odan town, in Yewa South Local Government Area, Ogun state.

The officials were reported to be pursuing two vehicles loaded with rice, coming from Igolo, a border town between Nigeria and Benin Republic. They reportedly seized the smugglers vehicles, but were ambushed while returning to their office at Idi-Iroko area. The clash with the smugglers allegedly led to the death of three children, a roadside mechanic and panel-beater, among others.

Muyiwa Adejobi, spokesman for the Ogun Police Command, said only two people died.
