|Two Killed As Customs Men, Saki Indigenes Clash by Praxtech: 4:18am On Aug 14, 2020|
TWO persons were killed in Saki, Oyo State, on Thursday as angry youths in the town engaged officers of Nigeria Customs Service in a bloody fight.
Our correspondent gathered that some Customs officers chased a driver, who they claimed smuggled bags of rice into the town.
The driver, whose identity could not be immediately ascertained, was said to have been shot dead in the process.
The killing was said to have triggered a violent reaction from the youths of the town, who attacked the Customs office in the town and also killed an officer of the NCS during the showdown.
Sources said the NCS office was set ablaze and vehicles parked there were damaged, but it was not clear if the building was completely burnt.
Although nobody was said to have been killed apart from the two earlier cases, some residents, it was gathered, sustained injuries.
In order to prevent further loss of lives and property, the Okere of Saki, Oba Khalid Olabisi, imposed curfew on the town starting from 7pm on Thursday.
The Director of Media of the Okere Palace, Mr Akeem Olabisi, said, “Kabiyesi has imposed a curfew, which starts from 7pm. This was done to prevent the situation from degenerating.”
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mr Olugbenga Fadeyi, said a resident was killed during a faceoff between some persons and a team of Joint Task Force, which comprised policemen, Customs officers, soldiers and others.

Why must Customs kill an harmless driver in the course of his means of livelihood?
Though smuggling is an economic sabotage, it still thrives as people have seen it as a way of life
Nobody deserves to die untimely for a meagre offence.

yinkus6750:The rice in question they want to arrest, is it not same custom officers that would end up sharing it and taking it to their homes? They are not after arresting the guy but the rice. 90% of these officers are thieves. Most shops where these items are sold, belongs to their wife
