The Oyo State Governor; governor Seyi Makinde has said men of the Nigeria Customs Service raided Igangan and other parts of Ibarapa areas of the state on Friday night, and not unknown gunmen as widely reported.



Mr Taiwo Adisa, the Chief Press Secretary to Gov. Seyi Makinde made the clarifications in a statement on Saturday in Ibadan.

Adisa said that the revelation was made known by Ibarapa community leaders during a fact-finding meeting between a team of the state government and political/traditional leaders of the affected communities on Saturday.

It will be recalled that some gunmen invaded Igangan in Ibarapa North local government and Ibarapa Central local government areas.

It was learnt that the gunmen who dressed in Customs uniform stormed the town around 8.pm and left after shooting sporadically.

Three people were allegedly killed while the shooting lasted.

But Adisa said, “The political and traditional leaders of Ibarapa extraction at the meeting, described the Friday raid on Igangan, Igbo-Ora and other communities in the area by men of the NCS as unnecessary and not well-thought-out.

“They called on the leadership of Customs Service to regulate operations of its personnel.

“It will be better if the authorities restrict them to border towns to end unwarranted attacks on innocent communities,” Adisa said.

The governor’s media aide said that Odukoya, who led the state government team to the meeting, had called for vigilance and calm among the people.

He said that police in the areas had confirmed the death of one Amotekun operative and two other persons, following the said raid.
