Nollywood star actor, Richard Mofe Damijo RMD has told the Nigerian Customs Service what to do with seized food items amid the COVID-19 lockdown being witnessed across the country.
The actor in a post shared via his Instagram page on Wednesday said that now is the right time for the Nigeria Customs Services to release all the seized food items in their warehouses to the poor.
According to the actor, the seized food items are needed to help those who can’t afford them during the lockdown especially those who depend on daily income to earn a living.
RMD wrote on Instagram; “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 the government 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 #giveoutseizedfooditems #customshelpus #rmdsaysso,” the thespian added.
RMD’s comments comes after singer and head honcho of Davido Music Worldwide (DMW) David Adeleke aka Davido for the second time in less than two weeks, tested negative for the dreaded COVID-19 disease.
The singer was forced to take the test after his fiancée, Chioma, who recently came back from London with their baby, Ifeanyi tested positive for COVID-19.
Davido took to his Twitter page on Wednesday to confirm the result of his second COVID-19 test which luckily for him, proved to be negative as there were chances that he could have been infected.
