From Muawuya Bala Idris Katsina
Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina State has condemned in the strongest term the oft recurring senseless killings of citizens through reckless driving by operatives of the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS).
The Governor’s position comes in the wake of the recent death of 10 people who were run over by an operative of the NCS driving an official vehicle in Jibia Local Government Area, recently.
In a statement issued and signed by Director Media, Abdu Labaran Malumfashi, the governor warned that the government will henceforth not condone any more of such incidents again.
The governor, while extending his sincere condolences to the families of the deceased and those who sustained injuries, warned that the government would not fold its arm while law abiding citizens are killed with impunity by reckless government agents who are supposed to protect them.
He said government was considering instituting legal action against the NCS so that it may serve as a deterrent against future occurrence of these fatal incidents, which according to him, have assumed a frightening regularity in the state.
