Shina Peller, the House of Representatives member representing Iseyin federal constituency, has reacted after 4 indigenes were reportedly killed by stray bullets and one injured when Customs officers allegedly opened fire on Sallah day.
Shina Peller wrote on Instagram:
I condemn in totality the purpoted killings of civilians by men of the Nigeria Customs Service in Iseyin yesterday.
According to the information made available to me, the victims, who were allegedly rice smugglers, were shot dead around Oja Oba area in Iseyin.
Whether the victims were actually smugglers or not, shooting sporadically in a public area where many innocent civilians were gathered to observe Eid-al Fitri celebration remains condemnable and should be treated as such by all.
While the Police has commenced an investigationI on the matter to unravel what really transpired, I urge my people to remain calm and peaceful.
