Nigeria Customs reportedly seizes foreign rice from ‘Buhari’s storekeeper’

Operatives of the Border Drill Operations of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) have reportedly seized 140 bags of foreign rice at a warehouse in Daura.

The warehouse allegedly belongs to Alhaji Habu Sarkin-Fulani.

Daily Nigerian reports that the owner is a confidant of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Customs operatives, acting on a tip-off, stormed Fegi quarters in Daura, the hometown of the president, and seized the rice.

The bags were allegedly given to the president through Sarkin-Fulani before ban on importation of foreign rice was imposed.

Nigeria Customs have been raiding warehouses and markets since Nigeria banned importation of foreign rice last year.

On Sunday, Minister of Agriculture, Sabo Nanono, stated that the federal government’s closure of Nigeria’s borders has boosted sale and consumption of local rice and other locally-produced commodities. Daily Nigerian
