Nine-month-old Buhari Muhammad, whose genital was cut off by his step-mother, has undergone first corrective surgery at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Bida, Niger. Mrs Mariam Kolo, the Director-General of the state Child Rights Protection Agency, made this known in an interview with newsmen in Minna on Friday.

Kolo told journalists that the surgery was part of the series of operations that the boy would undergo.

“He was operated upon by four neurologists and he is responding to treatment. “Several other tests will still be conducted to prepare him for the next operation,’’ Kolo said. Newsmen recall that Muhammad’s genital was cut off by his 17-year-old step mother, Bara’atu Muhammad, when he was barely a month old.

Nigeria’s Health Minister, Prof. Isaac Adewole has denied reports that “plastic rice” was being sold in the country, days after the customs service said 2.5 tonnes of the contraband had been confiscated.

BBC reports that Prof. Adewole tweeted that tests by the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) found “no evidence” of plastic material, suggesting the seized bags of rice had been okayed by NAFDAC and were safe for eating.

Prof. Adewole said the agency would “release detailed findings to public as soon as it concludes investigations”, urging Nigerians to remain calm.

Meanwhile, NAFDAC has denied claims by the Health Minister that it has cleared the reported “plastic” rice.

A senior official at NAFDAC said the minister’s Twitter statement “is not their position”.

It is not clear where the seized sacks came from but rice made from plastic pellets was found in China last year.
