Gov. Aminu Masari of Katsina State has condemned the recurring killings of innocent citizens through reckless driving by operatives of the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) in the state.

In a statement by Malam Abdu Labaran, Director General (DG), Media and Publicity to Masari and made available in Katsina on Friday,  Masari said he would no longer condone such senseless killings.

The National Daily reported how five people, were crushed to death  by operatives of the NCS driving recklessly in pursuit of suspected smugglers in Jibia Lacal Government, last Monday.

Masari extended his condolences to the families of the deceased and those who sustained injuries, warning that the government would no longer fold its arms to watch law abiding citizens killed by government agents who are supposed to be protecting them.

“The state government is considering  legal action against the NCS to serve as a  deterrent against future occurrence of the fatal incident” Masari said.

The Nigeria Customs Service, a major rvenue generator, is headed by retired Col Ali Hammed.
