1 min read

THE Katsina State House of Assembly is seeking the disbandment of the border drill team in the state.

The lawmakers ordered the house clerk to write to the state government requesting that the border drill team be disbanded.

This is in line with the motion moved by Mustapha Yusuf, the member representing Jibia Constituency,  following an auto accident involving Customs officers that led to the death of six people on Monday.

The lawmakers lamented that Customs officers, especially those in the border drill team, were unlawful.

The border drill is a joint task team of officers of the Nigeria Customs Service, State Security Service, Police, and Nigeria Immigration Service supervised by the Office of the National Security Adviser.
