The incident reportedly caused panic in the area while the nation marked Worker’s Day.
The NIS officials were chasing some suspected rice smugglers on their way from Igolo in Benin republic when custom officials stopped them at Sango.

Three of those killed, according to witnesses, are children. A motor mechanic, panel-beater and a secondary school leaver, simply identified as Ade, were also shot and killed.
