Don Jazzy has joined other Nigerians on social media in calling out the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) after the agency released a statement blaming Passengers of a certain commercial bus for the stray bullet that killed an unarmed man along the Sagamu Interchange in Ijebu Ode.
In case you missed the gist, yesterday morning, there was commotion along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway, after an official of the Nigerian Customs service, allegedly shot a man coming from abroad because of N5000 bribe.
It was gathered that they custom officers stopped a vehicle conveying a family returning from abroad and they demanded N5,000 bribe from them.
Another man was also reportedly stopped by the Customs official on his way to the Eastern part of the country and he was charged to pay almost N300,000 for a custom charge for his car which he refused and complained that it is too much.
After many arguments and out of annoyance the Custom officer mistakenly shot the man whom he and his family just returned from abroad in cold blood. (Watch the video HERE).
However, in reaction to the viral video through a statement released by the NCS public Relations Officer, DC Joseph Attah, the agency blamed Passengers of a commercial bus for obstruction of duty which led to the death of the victim.
NCS also blamed the witnesses for filming the moments and leaving the deceased who they claimed was a “friend” of the customs. (Read the statement HERE).
But many Nigerians have condemned their statement and called it ‘bullshit’. Don Jazzy has joined thousands of Nigerians on Instagram to rubbish the statement from Nigerian Customs Service after killing an unarmed man. He wrote:
“Corrupt bunch. Y’all killed that man. You shot at unarmed civilians that’s all. So sad.”
