Atleast four people have been killed, with a fifth person seriously injured in Iseyin, a town in Oyo State during a clash between some Customs officers and smugglers.

 

Lovetvnews Nigeria learnt that the incident occurred Thursday afternoon when some residents were still celebrating the Eld-Fitri festival.

According to sources, four people died as a result of gunshots they sustained when the customs officers were engaging the smugglers.

“The customs officers started shooting after intercepting smuggled goods coming through the borders, and four people died in the process.

Some of those hit by stray bullets were residents who were on ground to enjoy Eld-Fitri celebrations.

But, all efforts made by DAILY POST to get a reaction from the Spokesman of Oyo/ Osun command of Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Mr. Kayode Wey proved to be abortive as calls put through his mobile phone were not successful.
