The Chairman Senate Committee on Local Content, Senator Teslim Folarin, has said that the Senate will summon Controller General of Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) Col. Hameed Ibrahim Ali, over invasion of some markets in Ibadan by Customs officers.
It would be recalled that NCS, Federal Operation Unit (FOU), Zone A, had in April invaded Bodija Market where about eight truckloads of rice were carted away.
Also in the same zone, in the early hours of Saturday, they invaded Oja Oba Market in Ibadan, where six truckloads of rice were also carted away.
Folarin, while hosting Iftar (breaking of fast) with members of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) led by their Chairman, Ismail Ademola Babalola, insisted that he received the news of the invasion of the market with shock.
He described the action of the Customs officers as barbaric and uncivilised.
Folarin, who said that he has been discussing the matter with the leadership of the Senate, advised Customs to arrest smugglers at the borders and not within the town.
