Wonders may never end as thousands of youths, women and children near the Trailer Park at Ebubu, in Eleme Local Government Area of Rivers State, weekend, descended on a pit where several tonnes of chicken condemned by men of Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) were buried, digging them out and taking them home for consumption.
The Archbishop of Commonwealth Covenant Church, the Most Rev. Moses Kattey, had to put out a message on Sunday warning people against eating the condemned poultry.
“Truck loads of cartons of chicken were buried by government for health reasons. People have gone there to exhume the meat. Warn your people not to buy frozen or fried chicken in the next two weeks. They are poisonous. This happened here in Eleme but can be sold anywhere,” the Reverend said.
The Customs had last Friday, dug a huge pit and buried thousands of cartons of frozen poultry seized at the Onne Ports. Witnesses said the cartons of chicken were brought in six containers and emptied in the pit by NCS .
However, when news spread on the development, the scavengers went to the site early on Saturday. With no security at the site, they dug and opened the pit.
