The House of Representatives, on Tuesday, urged the Nigeria Customs Service to pay 390 million naira as compensation to victims of extrajudicial killings and injuries caused by its officers across the country.

The advice came after the recommendations in the reports by the Chairman House Committee on Customs and Excise, Leke Abejide, after investigating two incidents in Oyo State and one incident in Katsina State.

Meanwhile, the House also mandated relevant standing committees to ensure justice during the prosecution of the murder of 5-year-old Hanifa Abubakar.

The resolution was passed sequel to the adoption of a motion on a matter of urgent public importance sponsored by Honourable Kabiru Idris.

It would be recalled that 5-year-old Hanifa was kidnapped and murdered by her school proprietor, Abdulmalik Muhammad Tanko, in Kano State.
