Covid19: Give out those seized foods now, RMD tells Customs


Vetaran Nollywood star, Richard Mofe Damijo popularly called RMD has urged the Nigeria Custom service to donate food items and other comsumables seized by men of the agency at the border to vulnerable and indigent Nigerians to cushion the effect of the hardship as a result of lock downs due to Covid19.

Almost all states in the Nigeria have restricted movements, with some on lock downs and border closure.

RMD took to instagram to remind the agency and government on the need to give out those foods, because its of utmost priority at this time.

His appeal reads;  ”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.”
