Four persons were feared killed, while six others sustained gunshot wounds following an alleged clash between men of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) and smugglers at a border town in Ogun State.

The incident was said to have occurred at Ilara, in Imeko-Afon Local Government Area of the state at about 8:30 a.m. on Saturday.
