Oyo South, Senator (Dr) Kola Balogun Condemns Customs' Killing Of People At Igangan | Southwest-frontier News


The Senator representing Oyo South District in the 9th national Assembly, Dr Mohammed Kola Balogun has condemned the operations of the men of the Nigerian Custom Service that led to the killing of 2 residents of Igangan and Amotekun Commander at Igboora.



In a statement released by the Senator's SA Media, he claims it's becoming incessant that Custom's men would kill innocent lives in the cause of their operations in Oyo State and even provoke a whole city to violence in the process.

"Agencies of Government must respect the sanctity of lives and operate in such a way to ensure there are minimum casualties when engaging suspects within the cities, particularly where it is more than the 40km radius stipulated in the Custom's Acts. 



We could remember a similar operation in Oke-Ogun that left about 3 innocent people dead earlier this year. People should be held accountable for lives lost and admitting the operations are not enough, the erring officers must be brought to book or even prosecuted for killing innocent people" Senator Kola Balogun posited.

People of Igangan have gone through a lot recently and the tension in the town is enough to cause the Custom's men to apply utmost caution in their operations; to avoid this kind of crisis and also for the safety of their men. We must be able to prevent a situation where the youths would rise in protest against any government agency because of unlawful killings because there are no punitive measures.
