Some Nigerians have been captured in the act of digging contraband chicken from a dumpsite in a hope to resell for Easter.
The edibles were reportedly seized from smugglers by the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), according to a report on Nairaland. A video depicting this was shared on Facebook on Sunday, March 25, 2018, by the New Nigerian Order.
A group of people were seen scampering on a mass of bare ground in a bid to get their share of ‘free chicken’.
“Be careful of any frozen poultry this Easter- contraband frozen chicken was apparently buried at this spot- where people are digging up and reclaiming the dead buried chickens… presumably to wash refreeze and sell on.. so be careful,” the post reads.
The reaction brings to light the toils of Nigerians who are challenged by economic hardship as well as fuel scarcity.
