It’s no longer a rumor” Nigeria Custom Service Seized 102 bags of plastic rice at Ikeja -Lagos 

​The Federal Operations Unit, Ikeja of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has seized 102 bags of plastic rice branded “Beat Tomato Rice’’ with no date of manufacture. .

.

The Customs Area Controller of F.O.U. Comptroller Mohammed Haruna, said the commodity was stored for distribution as Yuletide gifts for the public.

.

.

Haruna said officers of the unit seized the plastic rice along Ikeja area on Monday, adding that a suspect was arrested in connection with the seizure.

.

“Before now, I thought it was a rumour that the plastic rice is all over the country but with this seizure, I have been totally convinced that such rice exists.

.

.

We have done the preliminary analysis on the plastic rice. After boiling, it was sticky and only God knows what would have happened if people consumed it.

.

.

I advise those economic saboteurs who see yuletide season as a peak period for nefarious acts to desist from such illegal business.

Haruna appreciated well-meaning Nigerians who provided the service with prompt information that led to the discovery of the bags of plastic rice.
