Nigeria Customs Service reacts to viral video of officer slapping governor’s aide
Ejes Gist Newspaper reports that the Nigeria Customs Service has responded to a viral video showing one of its officers punching Samson Nwachukwu, a Delta state governor’s aide, on the Benin/Agbor Expressway on Saturday, May 7th, in the company of a colleague and a military commander.
Before striking him, the officer can be heard furiously questioning who Mr. Samson Nwachukwu is after he told him he was a Special Assistant to the Governor of Delta State. A military officer told the customs officer to “bring this man down” at the end of the video.
The officer in question and other members of that team from FOU Zone ‘C’ have since been withdrawn from patrol duties, according to a statement released by the agency’s spokesperson, DC Timi Bomodi.
They are currently under administrative investigation at the NCS Zonal Headquarters Zone ‘C’ Port Harcourt.
“Officers of the Nigeria Customs Service have been educated to carry out their responsibilities with dignity and respect, and they are expected to behave themselves with decorum at all times. When they fail to do their tasks as prescribed, suitable punishments are used to maintain discipline.

The NCS wants to reassure the public that it is committed to the welfare and safety of all citizens, and it takes seriously any act by its employees that could harm the company’s reputation.
As we work diligently to bring closure to this unwholesome episode, we ask that all law-abiding citizens go about their daily routines without fear of intimidation or harassment.”
