A Nigerian soldier has reportedly shot a Customs officer to death at Seme border in Lagos State.
Daily Post gathered that the incident occurred early hours of Thursday.
An eye-witness who spoke with a reporter said the incident aroused tension in the area over fear of a clash between soldiers and customs officers at the border.
According to the source who pleaded not to be mentioned, the soldier was suspected to be under the influence of alcohol.
“It’s possible that the soldier was under the influence of alcohol because no one expected him to behave in such a strange manner.”
Seme is a Nigerian community that shares a border with Cotonou, the capital of Benin Republic.
