SEE IT: Oyo state releases photographs of poison-like rice sent to residents by Buhari admin as COVID-19 hunger reliever

The government of Oyo state in southwest Nigeria has released photographs of some poison-like rice sent by the Buhari administration to residents in the opposition PDP controlled state.

President Muhammadu Buhari is a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). But the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) is ruling the state of Oyo.

The Buhari administration sent 1,800 bags of rice to Oyo as COVID-19 hunger reliever.

The rice was delivered to Oyo by the Nigerian Customs Service. But the government of Oyo said the rice was not fit for human consumption.

As statements and counter statements swirled around, the Oyo state government on Monday released the photographs to show it was not politicizing the incident.

In a statement on Sunday, Taiwo Adisa the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Seyi Makinde, said any claim the rice is fit for human consumption is false.

“No government that is worth its name would agree to serve its people with food items that are infested with weevils that are clearly visible to the eyes,” the statement read.
