Lagos Warns of Imota Rice Mill Fraud

The Lagos State Government has reacted to a post by a Facebook profile “Imota Rice Mill Grains Page” on the sale of rice at the Imota Rice Mill, stating that it is the work of fraudulent elements.

The Facebook profile “Imota Rice Mill Grains Page” as well as another purportedly belonging to the H.C Agriculture, Abisola Olusanya, informs the general public about the sale of ” freshly milled and neatly packaged Eko Rice ” at cheaper rates, than the advertised rate which will be communicated to the public from time to time.

In a statement signed by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Agriculture, Dr. Oluwarotimi Fashola, the state warned fraudsters to desist from the act or face the wrath of the law.

The statement read in part, “The Lagos State Government hereby warns the general public not to fall victim of the ongoing scam, given the current economic challenges in the country and to take caution of this phone number 09033488091 with the name Adebayo, identified by True Caller as Farm Service Olam.

“Fraudsters and unscrupulous elements are also warned to desist from these dubious acts or face the full wrath of the Law.
