First, you need to read the manual page for Triggers. A Trigger can't execute Insert or Update or Delete on the table it's defined for. Use the keyword NEW to change values.

Second, SELECT count(cus_id) INTO @ct is malformed SQL. For the count of customer.cus_id values you need something like ...

set @ct = ( select count(cus_id) from customer );

Third, what problem is solved by basing a new customer.cus_id on the row count and rand()? If you really need foolproof pseudoandom unique IDs, why not use UUID()? Otherwise what is it about the requirement that rules out auto_increment?
