Two smugglers, Fakorede Jelili and Felarun Oluwasegun have been convicted over the assault of two officers of the Nigeria Customs Service in Ogun State.
 
 The National Public Relations Officer of Customs, Abdullahi Maiwada, who disclosed this in a statement on Sunday, February 11, 2024, said Felarun and Jelili were sentenced to 2 years imprisonment with hard labor without the option of fine by Honourable Justice Demi-Ajayi of the Federal High Court, Abeokuta.
 
According to the statement, the convictions secured on Tuesday, February 6, 2024, stemmed from their involvement in assembling to contravene customs laws, possession of smuggled goods and assaulting Customs Officers with charms and horsewhips at Owoyele-Igbogila, Yewa-North Local Government, Ogun State in 2023.
 
“The Comptroller General of Customs, Bashir Adewale Adeniyi MFR, asserted that 11 suspects were convicted for committing offences of improper importation, assault of Customs officers, possession of Pangolin scales meant for export, among other illicit items, while some other smuggling and related cases instituted in the courts are at various stages of prosecution and would be followed up diligently,” the statement read.
 
“Felarun Oluwasegun and Fakorede Jelili were first arraigned in Court in May 2023 on a three-count charge and have been remanded at the correctional center in Abeokuta since then until their recent conviction.”
