A customs official would be thanking his stars after escaping death at the hands of angry mob in Apapa area of Lagos state.
It was gathered that the Customs personnel and his colleagues allegedly killed someone in the area because of “smuggled rice”. The young men in the area mobilized themselves and descended on the officer they could catch.
The customs officer was beaten black and blue and also injured in the process. A video posted online shows the moment the officer was begging for his life after being left bloodied.
Some youths restrained their colleagues from further beating the man as they decided to leave him because of his status as para-military personnel.
