An update on the custom officer that killed innocent passenger on ijebu ode road

The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) said its officers involved in the incident that occurred along Ijebu Ode road on Sunday are being interrogated.

A video, which went viral on social media on Sunday, showing a passenger of a commercial bus being shot dead by a custom officer, though, it was actually denied by NCS, saying it was an accidental discharge. Really a mistake.

Mr Joseph Attah, the Public Relations Officer of the NCS, giving more information in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Monday, explain further that the Customs Assistant Controller General, Zone A visited the Federal Operations Unit in the zone at Ikeja, Lagos on Monday to interrogate the officers involved. He said that the investigation was to find out the immediate and reasons that causes the unfortunate incident that led to the death of an innocent citizen.

According to him, the investigation will also reveal if a better handling of the weapon would have averted the incident.

“The officers involved are being interrogated, we will look at it holistically, including weapon handling skills.

“If the officers are found guilty, definitely they will be punished appropriately, but we will allow the investigation to take place first.

“We still stand our ground that it is not a passenger of the bus that was deliberately shot dead but the victim was hit by the accidental discharge.

“An audio is now trending from one of the passengers of the bus saying that the person that died is not one of them.

“We insist that the person that died was not a passenger but a good Samaritan who used to assist our officers, we described him as a friend of Customs,’’ he explained.

“Like we said in our statement, it is painful and totally bad to lose life in anti-smuggling operations.’’

He urged the general public to be wary and careful of what was being posted on social media because some of those things could mislead them.

  6. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
