Customs Chief Adeniyi Pledges Justice in Officer Haruna’s Murder Case

The Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Adewale Adeniyi, has made a solemn vow to bring justice for the late customs officer, Auwal Haruna, who was brutally murdered by suspected smugglers in Katsina State. The commitment was made during Adeniyi’s visit to the grieving family in Kayawa, Dutsi Local Government Area.

“Justice will be served. We owe it to Auwal and every officer who risks their life for the nation,” Adeniyi declared, underscoring the gravity of the situation and the Customs Service’s resolve to act. The tragic incident, which occurred on April 17, 2024, at the Gamjin Makaho checkpoint along the Katsina-Dankama road, has sparked a manhunt for the perpetrators.

Adeniyi described the attack as “unprovoked and barbaric,” and expressed his deep condolences to the Haruna family and the entire community of Kayawa. “The loss of Auwal is not just a loss to the family, but to the nation. He served with honor and courage,” he added.

The Customs Service has initiated a rigorous investigation and is working closely with other security agencies to apprehend those responsible. “We will not rest until those who took Auwal’s life face the full wrath of the law,” Adeniyi affirmed.

Governor Dikko Umaru Radda of Katsina State also spoke at the event, calling for swift action and justice. He emphasized the importance of security agencies in ensuring the safety of customs officers and the communities they protect.

The incident has highlighted the risks faced by customs officers in the line of duty and has rallied the community and government officials to support the Haruna family and the Nigeria Customs Service in their quest for justice.
