SSS arrests Customs Comptroller over arms deal

A Comptroller of Customs, Jack Bot, was on Tuesday arrested by men of the State Security Service (SSS)  for allegedly buying ammunitions over time from Niger State Police command.

Mr Bot was arrested at the customs head office Wuse, Abuja, alongside two police officers for alleged involvement in supplying arms and ammunition to armed robbers.

The customs officer and the two policemen were alleged to have a connection with the disappearance of some ammunition from the police armoury in Minna.

According to the Comptroller General of Customs Service, Abdullahi Inde Dikko “it was suspected that someone among my officers was aiding armed robbers with weapons…eventually a junior officer, one Shehu, who is an orderly to a comptroller, Jack, from Plateau State was arrested.”

Upon Shehu’s arrest,  SSS discovered that  Jack was Shehu’s boss and that they had been in the shady deal since 2002.  SSS also found that they even supplied weapons to Jos during crises.

The spokesman of the Nigerian Customs Service Wale Adeniyi confirmed Bot’s arrest istating that investigation is still going on.
