A video of residents of Lagos State queueing to purchase bags of rice sold by the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) for the sum of N10,000 has surfaced online.

Recall that Customs announced that the distribution of seized food items will commence on Friday (today).

In a statement issued to journalists in Lagos, the NCS Comptroller General, Adewale Adeniyi, disclosed that customs officials are not allowed to be involved in the process.

In the video, the women queued in an orderly manner while going one after the other to receive the bag of rice they paid for.

According to the statement issued through the service’s National Public Relations Officer, Abdullahi Maiwada, Adeniyi stated that the rice will be packaged in 25kg bags and sold for N10,000.

The target groups, he said, included artisans, teachers, nurses, religious bodies, and other Nigerians within its operational areas.

The aim, he said, is to establish direct communication with members through these structured systems in order to guarantee the utmost effectiveness of this initiative.

Adeniyi cautioned against the resale of food items, emphasizing that the NCS is fully dedicated to transparency and accountability throughout the entire process.
