Nigeria Customs Service, Oyo/Osun Area Command, on Wednesday rejected the 1,800 bags of rice donated to Oyo state by the Federal Government that was returned.

The Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, Oyo State, Jacob Ojemuyiwa, who led the team were denied entry at the main gate of the NIS zonal headquarters in Ibadan.

According to Dr Debo Akande, a Special Adviser to Governor Seyi Makinde, on Friday alleged that the rice was not good for human consumption.

The delegation was told on Wednesday to return the bags to the state government.

While addressing journalists, the commissioner said, “The state had written a letter to the Nigeria Customs Service indicating that the bags of the weevil-infested rice would be returned.”

The commissioner stated that the team would report back to the State Executive Council for necessary steps.

While speaking with an official of NIS, who under condition of anonymity, said the delegate was turned back because the command had not received any directive to receive the rejected bags of rice.
