Senate demands sanctions for customs officers misusing firearms at borders
Written by News Desk on November 8, 2023
The Senate is demanding that erring personnel of the Nigeria Customs Service who misuse their firearms at the nation’s borders should be punished.
During plenary, the upper chamber asked the NCS to reduce the number of checkpoints at border communities to aid free flow of goods.
This is as it adopted the recommendations of an ad hoc committee, four months after setting up the committee to probe the alleged misuse of firearms.
Presenting the report at the parliament, the Chairman of the Committee, Francis Fadahunsi, said the comptrollers at the Idiroko and Katsina borders should be replaced with new ones.
