Assistant Comptroller General of Customs and Zonal Coordinator in charge of Zone A, Aminu Dahiru, has urged Customs officers to always stand by their colleagues in times of distress.
Dahiru said this while addressing parades of Customs officers across various formations in Lagos as part of his mid-year tour.
Apparently reacting to a recent attack launched against some Customs outposts where officers were seriously injured, he condemned the act of running away by other colleagues, leaving the injured officers at the mercy of attackers.
