Suspected hoodlums on Tuesday under the guise of the #EndSARS protesters invaded the Benin out station of the Nigerian Customs Service (NSC) and carted away some seized contrabands in the warehouse.
Mr Meshach Uban, the Officer in charge of the outstation, confirmed the development to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Benin.
Uban said that the hoodlums, who attacked the outstation at about 3pm, defied the rains to carry out looting in the out stations for more than four hours on.
He said that he and his officers were lucky to have escaped with their lives, adding that in spite of distress calls to the Edo Commissioner of Police, Johnson Kokumo, there was no response from the police. (NAN)
