It was gathered that a young man, alleged to be a smuggler was shot on the head.
According to witnesses, the Customs officers riddled vehicles around the seen with bullets as they fled.
“There would have been serious riot this morning at Abule Egba but for the intervention of policemen from the Rapid Response Squad ( RRS ).
