The Commandant of the NSCDC, Mr Ibrahim Abdullahi, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Maiduguri.

Abdullahi said that the suspects were arrested in Makera area of the state capital while re-bagging the flour into Dangote product sacks.

He said that the suspects were allegedly re-bagging expired flour into Dangote sacks and selling them to unsuspected consumers in the market.

"The NSCDC had apprehended one Bukar Muhammad who smuggled and imported expired flour from Qatar through Lagos state.

"He also confessed to have sold many of the sacks of flours to unidentified consumers. The sacks we suspected are from Qatar Tender Committee meant for humanitarian purposes.

"The problem is that if anything happens today, people would say Dangote flour is killing people.

"We also know that anything that is expired must have health consequences and is not good for consumption," Abdullahi said.

He added that investigation is ongoing, assuring that the command will expose other culprits in various markets who normally re-bag expired products in the state capital.
