The Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) has written apology letter to the Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode through the Attorney General of the State for onward delivery to Chief Judge of Lagos State over the attack on Mobile Court Magistrate by suspected Customs officers.

The letter which dated June 15, 2016, was written following the attack by officers of the command on the Lagos mobile court of Magistrate Lekan Aka-Bashorun and his team while moving along Allen Avenue, Ikeja, to impound vehicles caught violating traffic laws.

Some officers of the Nigeria Customs Service, Federal Operation Unit, Ikeja had attacked a Lagos State Mobile Court for impounding their vehicles parked on the walk-way, Ikeja.

The letter by Nigeria Customs Service reads that: “we unequivocally condemn it in the strongest terms and hereby wish to apologise without reservations, we assure you that the incident will not repeat itself”.

Also, the Nigeria Customs Service promised to ensure the success of the mobile court task force in Lagos State and has taken actions to that effect by dismantling the car wash located near its premises.
