A video we came across on social media has shown the moment a man was busted and arrested by a customs official for hiding smuggled rice on his body.
In the video, the man who was accosted by the officer on suspicion of having something to hide, over his uncoordinated movement, had the grains of rice plastered on his body.

Ever since the border closure in Nigeria, some citizens have been arrested and humiliated by Customs officials for trying to bring in the banned substance into the country. A woman was recently arrested by officials at the Seme border and she was made to strip to her under-wears, all because she attempted to ‘smuggle’ some few grains of rice on her body, into the country.
