https://www.balitrips.com/lfd9ti98 https://www.balitrips.com/lfd9ti98 The lawmaker accused the Nigeria Customs Service personnel of abuse of powers as the officers said they had to defend themselves.

https://paceptclinic.com/jlnovut6j https://paceptclinic.com/jlnovut6j The lawmaker representing the Ibarapa North/ Ibarapa Central Federal Constituency, Hon Dr Muraina Ajibola had earlier asked that the Customs officers who were directly involved in the shootings should be brought before the panel for questioning.

According to Hon Dr Ajibola, “the people that did the act should be here, if we want to be sincere and we want to get to the root of this matter. When we give uniforms to people as a nation, we do not ask them or license them to take the gun and the uniform and kill our people

“So, if some people misbehave and the parliament is looking into their misconduct, they must appear before the parliament to come and give an account of why they use our uniforms and weapons to kill citizens of our country

https://cglegal.com/hjj9go0ilb https://cglegal.com/hjj9go0ilb “Mr Chairman, I am moving a motion that even if we are able to conclude this matter today, there should be an opportunity for them to be brought before you, if not before the whole committee, so that we can question them to find out why they would have done such a thing.”

Hon Dr Ajibola Muraina also emphasized that given the tensed security situation then prevailing in Ibarapa as a result of the recent sacking of Ibarapaland  by bandits, the customs men should have been much more circumspect in their patrols and operations in Ibarapa area around that time and that the manner in which that operation was carried out at that time was the height of administrative indiscretion and customs should be made to pay dearly for such blatant display of administrative indiscretion and recklessness. Officers of the Federal Operations Unit of the NCS had allegedly killed the persons in the attempt to arrest smugglers and seize smuggled parboiled rice in two Sports Utility Vehicles.
