Senate to Investigate Customs’ Midnight Invasion of Rice Market in Sango

The Nigeria Senate today (Thursday) has ordered investigation into the invasion of shops by officials of the Nigeria Customs Service in Sango Ota, Ogun State.

This was coming after Senator Gbolahan Dada representing Ogun West Senatorial District demanded urgent intervention of the Senate into the matter.

Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, who presided over plenary, raised the matter.

Responding, Senators overwhelmingly supported the Dada’s prayer.

The incident will therefore be investigated by Senate Committee on Customs.

Customs had alongside soldiers broken into several shops in the market around 12am.

They reportedly took away 4,550 bags of rice and 75 jerrycans of vegetable oil, estimated at millions of naira.‎

The raid forced rice sellers in Sango Market in the Ado Odo/Ota Local Government Area of Ogun State last week blocked the Temidire end of the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway for over seven hours.

‎The traders also accused the operatives of breaking their safes and taking money during the operation that lasted for about three hours.
