A Nigerian rice seller was caught in a video reducing bags of rice by one painter each.
A video posted on TikTok by De Ambassador showed how the rice sellers' staff were reducing each bag of rice.
They used a small painter after creating a hole in the rice bag and collected some grains from each.
The holes created in the bags were in such a way that the rice poured out freely.
