Parents of Slain Customs Officer Request Replacement from CGC

The parents of slain Customs officer Awwal Haruna have appealed to the Comptroller General of Customs (CGC), Bashir Adewale Adeniyi, to replace their son with one of his siblings.
The request comes after Awwal Haruna was tragically killed by an angry mob, suspected to be smugglers, in Katsina State, Nigeria.
During a condolence visit by a high-powered delegation on behalf of the CGC, Awwal’s mother, Malama Murjanatu Haruna, expressed her grief over the loss of her son, acknowledging that his death was part of his destiny.
She pleaded with the CGC to consider replacing Awwal with one of his siblings, as they all possess the necessary qualifications for the job.
Awwal Haruna was lynched by suspected traders and commercial drivers at Gamjin Makaho on the Kaita-Dankama Road in Katsina State.
The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has vowed to bring the perpetrators to justice, with the CGC himself promising to arrest and prosecute those responsible for the brutal act.
The loss of Awwal Haruna has not only devastated his family but has also raised concerns about the safety of Customs officers in Nigeria.
The NCS has been working tirelessly to ensure the safety of its officers and to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future.
In response to the tragic event, the Customs Area Controller of the Katsina Area Command expressed his condolences to the family, emphasizing that the NCS is doing everything in its power to apprehend the killers of Awwal Haruna.
This heartbreaking story serves as a reminder of the dangers faced by law enforcement officers in Nigeria and the importance of ensuring their safety while they carry out their duties.
The NCS remains committed to protecting its officers and bringing those responsible for the death of Awwal Haruna to justice.
