…Video reveals smugglers die -hard tendencies, violent attack on officers

The Maritime Journalists Association of Nigeria (MAJAN), has condemned Incessant attacks on Customs officers from Ogun 1 Command carrying out their statutory duties.

The Executive members of MAJAN, issued this press statement after watching the viral video in its secretariat at Apapa, Lagos.

The ASSOCIATION took time to watch the viral video step-by-step and thoroughly scrutinised the content.

In the process of reviewing the viral video showing sporadic shooting by officers, it revealed clearly smugglers die- hard tendencies with violent attack on officers, who were carrying out their anti-smuggling function .

MAJAN Executive observed that the smugglers were the first to attack the officers, closing up on them, while the officers shut into the air, trying to defend themselves from the dreaded smugglers, who came out in large numbers to attack them.

The group also observed that while the smugglers directed their attack on officers, in a deliberate attempt to disarm them, the officers only shut into the air, in order to escape from the scene,  which shows high level of professionalism and character.

MAJAN as an association condemns in strong terms recurring attacks on officers by economic saboteurs, working against the policy of the Federal Government in growing the nation’s economy.

MAJAN frowned :  “A situation where smugglers deliberately attack officers on lawful duty is totally unacceptable. The culprits involved in this attack must be arrested and prosecuted, to serve as deterrent to others.

“We must realise that Customs officers are Nigerians like other citizens with a right to life. As such, their fundamental human right must be respected at all times.

“We equally condemn the act of smuggling, which is doing damage to the economy and overall well being of Nigerians”.
