The police have apprehended  a customs officer for shooting a driver at Iya-Afin registration, Badagry, on Wednesday.

Police sources told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Badagry that the customs officer (name witheld) purportedly shot the casualty at the right arm since he declined to stop for a check.

As per the source, the driver, who was driving from Seme Border, declined to stop at the check point and the officer opened fire which hit him at the right arm.

"Companions and relations of the casualty who were near, assembled the people to assault the officer and it nearly declined into mayhem," a witness said.

Be that as it may, SP Samson Akinromen, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in Badagry, promptly visited the scene and requested the capture of the traditions officer.
"The officer was taken to Badagry Police Station while the casualty was raced to an obscure healing facility for treatment," the source said.

A portion of the relatives of the casualty who visited the police headquarters were informed that the case had been transfered to Police Area "K" Command at Morogbo.
Saidu Abdullahi, Seme Border Customs Spokesman, said the occurrence was yet to be accounted for to the command.
