A joint team of Customs and Army officers have been accused of allegedly breaking into shops at Popo Street in Yaba, Lagos to allegedly confiscate second-hand clothings popularly known as Okirika.
According to eyewitnesses, the incident occurred on Sunday December 29 while most owners of the shops are away for the Christmas holiday.
Facebook user, Onyekachi Titus who shared the story wrote;
