The suspected smuggler was said to have been killed, an incident that drew the ire of other indigenes, who reportedly attacked the Customs officers.

The monarch of the town, Oba Khalid Olabisi, reportedly intervened. However, despite his intervention, Vanguard gathered that palpable fear has engulfed the town.

When Vanguard called the Customs Service for comments, the phone of the Public Relations Officer of the command kept being “busy”.
