Mob lynched customs officer in Katsina

Written by on April 17, 2024

An officer of the Katsina State Command of the Nigeria Customs Service, NCS, was killed by an angry mob on Wednesday morning in Dankama, a border town in Kaita Local Government Area, Katsina.

The commotion reportedly started when the driver of a truck loaded with goods and passengers refused to stop when he was ordered to stop for routine checkups by the customs operatives.

In return, one of the officers allegedly fired gunshots at the moving truck, killing one of the passengers on board.

Consequently, the mob reportedly went after one of the officers, who ran into a nearby building to seek refuge and lynched him.

Tahir Balarabe, the command’s spokesperson, confirmed the death of the officer, whom he identified as Awal Haruna.

“A mob action at one of our outposts led to the killing of one of our personnel earlier today while in the line of duty,” he said.
