Music producer, Don Jazzy has condemned the statement by the Nigeria Customs Service, NCS, over a trending video which captured one of its personnel shooting a man to death on Sunday.
DAILY POST reports that DC Joseph Attah, NCS Public Relations Officer, in a statement on Sunday reacting to the video, stated that while it is painful and totally unnecessary to lose life, the victim caused his death.
He said: “Today at Shagamu interchange along Ijebu Ode, an attempt to obstruct lawful performance of duty by passengers of a commercial bus (a white Toyota Hiace) suspected to be carrying bales of used clothing led to the death of a young man (Godwin) and serious injury of a Customs Officer, ASC1, Destiny Onebamho.
“Contrary to some narratives, the young man was not a passenger of the bus but a good citizen who always come to fetch water for Customs Patrol men anytime they return to the base.
But reacting to the explanation, Don Jazzy blasted Customs over its statement, describing the body as ‘corrupt’.
He joined thousands of Nigerians to rubbish the statement from the Nigeria Customs Service after killing an unarmed man
On his Instagram alongside a statement from customs, the Mavin producer wrote: “Corrupt bunch. You all killed that man.
“You shot at unarmed civilians that’s all. So sad.”
