As Federal Government announces the reopening of some land borders, rice millers under the auspices of Rice Millers Association of Nigeria, RIMAN, Sunday, proposed stringent measures to curb illicit businesses carried by criminal-minded persons undermining the prohibition of some items by the government.

This was made known by the National President, RIMAN, Peter Dama, in an interview with Vanguard, following fears of connivance by some government security personnel with those who smuggle prohibited items into the country.

Dama charged security personnel representing the country a the borders to be diligent, honest, and patriotic in enforcing the law in the interest of economic growth and development.
