Hoodlums Invade Customs Outstation In Edo, Cart Away Seized Contraband

Hoodlums on Tuesday under the guise of the #EndSARS protesters invaded the Benin out-station of the Nigeria Customs Service (NSC) and carted away some seized contraband in the warehouse.

Mr Meshach Uban, the Officer in charge of the outstation, confirmed the development in Benin.

Uban said that the hoodlums, who attacked the outstation at about 3pm, defied the rains to carry out looting in the out stations for more than four hours.

He said that he and his officers were lucky to have escaped with their lives, adding that in spite of distress calls to the Edo Commissioner of Police, Johnson Kokumo, there was no response from the police.
