Terrorists on Thursday killed an officer of the Nigeria Customs Service in Katsina.
The terrorists around 2:30 A.M attacked a joint security checkpoint not far from the Nigerian Army Battalion Natsinta Barracks on Jibia road.
A local source, Ibrahim Ali, said the terrorists came on motorcycles from the Bugaje village axis of the road and started shooting.
“I heard the roaring of their motorcycles from my house then suddenly, I began hearing gunshots. In the morning, we heard that the attack was at the checkpoint. We’re happy in this area because we think with these checkpoints, we would be safe but it was terrible hearing those gunshots yesterday,” he said.
A security source said the terrorists targeted officers of the joint security force and killed a customs officer.
The Nigeria Customs Service spokesperson in Katsina, Tahir Balarabe, confirmed the killing but said he would not comment officially because the slain officer belonged to the Strike Force.
“Yes, it happened as you said but we’ve not released a statement because, though he was our colleague, he was an officer of the Strike Force. So, you people should wait for the strike force to release an official statement on the attack,” he said.
