The Customs men were said to be pursuing a Sport Utility Vehicle conveying bags of rice when the clash occurred.
There were claims that the NCS base in the town was torched by protesting youths, while some vehicles were also razed. But these claims could not be independently verified.
However, the Aseyin of Iseyin, Oba Abdulganiyy Salau, condemned the killings in a statement.
Oba Salau said, “We will no longer allow Customs officers and men to continue wasting the lives of our promising young ones, our future and hope, and so drastic steps shall be taken to look into the remote and the immediate causes of the killings.
“The Aseyin-in-Council is going to intervene in this matter and we shall get to the root of it. I enjoined members of the families of the victims to repose confidence in the traditional institution, because prompt actions are being taken to allow peace to reign permanently in the town.” ,,
