Nigeria Federal Lawmakers have resolved to probe the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) over the raiding and carting away of goods in shops at a rice market in Sango-Otta area of the state.
The traders in the rice market accused Nigerian Customs Service of carrying out the raid unlawfully.

The Senate came to the decision after a brief debate over a motion moved by Senator Gholahan Dada under Orders 42 & 52, over the unlawful seizure of rice and invasions of shops by the customs in Ogun State.
While the Lawmakers agreed that the Customs is empowered by law to carry out raids, it resolved to carry out the investigation to know if the Customs did not step out of the ambit of the law.

The Senate’s decision to probe the Customs’ actions was reached after Senate Majority Leader Senator Ahmed Lawan argued that it is necessary for the legislature to look into if the Customs did not do anything wrong while carrying out the raid.
Recall that a violent protest by rice traders broke out on Wednesday, February 22 over alleged invasion of their markets by officers of the Nigerian Customs.
