ABUJA – It is with deep sadness and regret that we confirm the passing of an esteemed official of the Nigeria Customs Service who was at the National Assembly for an engagement with a House Committee.

During the engagement, which occurred around 1.00pm on Tuesday, June 25, 2024, the official developed sudden health complications. Despite the immediate and diligent efforts of first responders and medical personnel at the National Assembly Clinic, he unfortunately passed away.

This was contained in a statement signed by the House Spokesman / Chairman, House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Rep. Akin Rotimi, Jr. made available to Precise Post in Abuja.
