Nigeria Customs Service Reacts To Viral Video Of Officer Slapping Governor’s Aide



Nigeria Customs Service (NSC) has reacted to a trending video of a customs officer slapping a governor’s aide.


According to Customs, the officer is currently undergoing administrative investigation.


TRIXX NG has reported how the officer assaulted Samson Nwachukwu, who is an aide to the Delta state governor, along the Benin/Agbor Expressway on Saturday, May 7th.


In a statement released by the agency’s spokesperson, DC Timi Bomodi, says the officer in question and other members of that team from FOU Zone ‘C’ have since been withdrawn from patrol duties and are currently under administrative investigation at the NCS Zonal Headquarters Zone ‘C’ Port Harcourt.


Officers of the Nigeria Customs Service have been trained to carry out their duties with dignity and respect, and are expected to display decorum in all their conduct at all times. Where they fail to carry out their brief as assigned, appropriate sanctions are applied to enforce discipline. The NCS would like to reassure the general public of its commitment to the welfare and safety of all citizens and frowns seriously at any act by its personnel capable of misrepresenting its corporate image. 


“We ask that all law-abiding persons go about their activities without fear of intimidation or harassment as we work assiduously to bring closure to this unwholesome incident.” the statement read
