Residents of the North-Central state of Kwara on Friday, descended on a COVID-19 palliative warehouse located in Ilorin, carting away various food items and packages.
The warehouse is located close to the Ilorin International Airport. However, the youths as seen in the videos that have gone viral on the internet, didn’t wait for the government to share the items as they happily looted the items and escaped with as much as they could carry.
Cartoons of Indomie noodles, bagged rice and some other food items were carted away by the residents. Other items the invaders made away with include raw food items like beans, noodles, sugar, salt, garri, rice, pastas, and others.
According to one of the people at the scene who spoke to newsmen, they believe the government will not eventually share the palliatives to people but want to keep them till 2023 as campaign materials.
