A rice grower in Adamawa state screamed for help after criminals broke into his mill and took bags of white parboiled rice worth 188,465,000 NIS.

Alhaji Mohammed Shemad, chief executive of Shemad Concept Nigeria Ltd, told reporters on Monday morning that criminals broke into his rice mill located in Baku Kogi, a coastal village in the Yola North Local Government Area (LGA). and they removed all 10,615 bags of processed rice.
