Kegs filled with grains of rice disguised as palm oil have been intercepted by the Nigeria Customs officials.
According to the Customs boss, the smugglers were arrested at Idiroko bush on the Nigeria-Benin border along the Lagos-Badagry-Porto Novo highway while they were trying to smuggle the kegs of rice.
A video showing how the smugglers disguised the rice to make it look like palm oil has surfaced online.
Inside the video, a yet-to-be identified Customs boss can be seen narrating how the smugglers were arrested.
In the 2-minute video, the inner cover of the keg can be seen with drops of palm oil in it. A nylon of palm oil is also placed in the mouth of the keg so that anyone who dips a finger into the keg will touch palm oil.
However, when the nylon of palm oil is removed, it exposes the grains of rice concealed inside the kegs.
