As a way of avoiding loss in business, the beans sellers use it to ensure their stock stays weevil-free.

The man, who claimed he saw them, said he had seen this happen multiple times at Iddo market but they never listen to him whenever he challenges them.

He wrote, “Short of words! Snippers as preservatives? I actually saw these a couple of times at Iddo market. I challenged them severally, but hey I’m just an individual who is ready to eat clean.

“What we buy from the open market isn’t monitored by any regulatory body here in Nigeria, in short Africa.”
