Rice sellers caught on camera removing portions of rice from bags and repackaging to sell as a full bag

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Rice sellers were filmed tearing open full bags of rice to remove some of it before repackaging to sell as a full bag at the same price as a full bag of rice.

It’s been an open secret that traders who sell, rice, beans, and other grains in bags do this but a Facebook user, Woli Kekere, managed to capture them in the act and shared videos online to expose the fraud.

According to Kekere, at least 8 dericas (container used to measure rice in Nigeria) of rice was removed from each bag. They then transferred the rest of the rice from the regular bags into slighly smaller bags to make it fill the bag to the brim as though it were a complete bag.
