CUSTOMS TO SANCTION OFFICER FOR SLAPPING GOVERNOR’S AIDE

The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) says it will sanction one of its officers seen in a viral video assaulting Samson Nwachukwu, an aide to the Delta state governor.

The incident occurred along the Benin/Agbor Expressway on Saturday, May 7th, in the presence of a military officer.

In the video seen by BCOS.TV, the Customs officer slapped Nwachukwu after he had told him he is a Special Assistant to a Governor.

The video ended with the military officer telling the customs officer to “get this man down.”

A statement released on Monday 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DC Timi Bomodi, says the officer in question and other members of that team from FOU Zone ‘C’ have since been withdrawn from patrol duties and are currently under administrative investigation at the NCS Zonal Headquarters Zone ‘C’ Port Harcourt.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,” it added.

According to the statement, Nigeria Customs reassured the general public of its commitment to the welfare and safety of all citizens and frowns at any act by its personnel capable of misrepresenting its corporate image.
