Veteran Nollywood actor, Mofe Damijo, has called on the Nigerian government to make a request of the Nigerian Customs Authority to disburse the uncountable bags of rice they seize at the border to Nigerians as a way of making the stay-at-home period hunger free.
The actor made this known through his official Instagram page on Friday, April 3, 2020.
According to the screen maestro, the Nigeria Customs Authority has thousands of seized bags of rice, tomato paste, vegetable oil and other food items in their custody and the only way forward is to disburse them to Nigerians in a time like this.
“Food is a major part of this lock down. I know sometimes the agencies of govt don’t work as a team but please this is the time for customs to step and tell us how much relief they can bring to Nigerians” he said.

“Sitting here wondering if this wont be a good time for government to ask Customs about all the plenty seized rice, tomato, vegetable oil and all the other food items they have in their possession and give out to our people in need. Whilst thanking them for reduced fuel prices at this time (inject smiley face)and all the other efforts so far, food is a major part of this lock down. I know sometimes the agencies of govt dont work as a team but please this is the time for customs to step and tell us how much relief they can bring to nigerians. #giveoutseizedfooditems #customshelpus #rmdsaysso”
