Duniya in a telephone conversation with Press on Saturday noted that the customs is empowered to carry out such operation.

“Yes. Until we examine them. You are aware that the federal government imposed a ban on importation of foreign rice to encourage local production in the country.

“As it stands, foreign rice is a contraband and the law empowers us, the act that established the service empowers officers to carry out such operations.
