The BBC’s Martin Patience examines some of the 2.5
tonnes of “plastic rice” seized in the Nigerian city of
Lagos.
Lagos customs chief Haruna Mamudu said the fake rice
was intended to be sold in markets during the festive
season.
He said the rice was very sticky after it was boiled and
“only God knows what would have happened” if people
ate it.
It is not clear where the seized sacks came from but rice
made from plastic pellets was found in China last year
