There was pandemonium on Saturday and Sunday near the Trailer Park at Ebubu in Eleme Local Government Area of Rivers when thousands of youths, women and children descended on a burrow pit; dug out and took home several tonnes of chicken condemned and buried by men of the Nigerian Customs.
The scavengers came with shovels, pans, basins and buckets to cart their loot home. The Customs had on Friday dug out a canal there and buried thousands of cartons of frozen poultry they seized at the Onne Ports. Witnesses said the chicken were brought in six containers, emptied and buried before the customs party left.
But news soon spread abroad about the development and very early on Saturday, the human carrions came calling. With no security at the site, they dug and dug and opened up the pit.
A visit to many homes around the area on Sunday revealed serious barbecuing going on as people roasted and dried the chicken they exhumed from the burial site. In one home a full length refrigerator was stocked full of roast chicken, while the hosts invited guest to a sumptuous pick. But the development has sent an alarm across Eleme and neighbouring communities about the danger of eating the condemned chicken. The Archbishop of the popular Commonwealth Covenant Church, the Most Rev. Moses Kattey, had to put out a message to the people on Sunday warning people off eating chicken for two weeks.

Even the customs made a mistake by not burning them before burying

I learnt the chickens were preserved with Fomalin, normally used to preserve dead bodies. After being tested by Nafdac, they decided to destroy it, even poured fuel on it to condemn it, yet....

The customs department should have had a designated location of destroying such hazard. They went to somebody's land to dispose of the chicken and that gave the green flag for people to dig for chicken. They suppose to burn the chicken to ashes before disposing them.
