Actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo persuades Nigerian custom to give out seized food items because of coronavirus

Veteran Nollywood actor, Richard Mode-Damijo has called out Nigerian customs on Instagram to please release seized food items in their custody so that Nigerians can feed on them during this challenging period. According to the 58-year-old, the Federal Government should order the release of seized food items by Nigerian custom so that it will help to feed Nigerians in this critical period. In his words “Sitting here wondering if this won't be a good time for the 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 lockdown. 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.
