"Looting foodstuff isn’t possessing your possession. You are a thief just like most of the corrupt politicians we criticise. Don’t encourage this sort of nonsensical behaviour with words of flattery."
The Nigerian man's tweet gathered massive engagement and has close to 9,000 likes at the time of writing this report.
Below are some of the comments from people:
"Exactly what I was discussing with my sis. A thief is a thief! You can't say because they government stole, u also have to steal from them. Two wrongs can never and will never make a right."
"Leaving it in the warehouse to spoil is worst evil unpardonable by God, If you are thinking in this direction you are same with the government ,masses takenote...and by the way if the possessor of foodstuff also share to their neighbor's who do not have 1bag but you have 10bags"
"@OgbeniDipo have you ever been hungry and have no hope of food in your life? Please lets not be judgemental unless you have been in the shoes of those you want to judge. This is the reason those countries we praise have plans for social welfare."
"You can’t loot what’s yours, so it’s not looting. It’s just locating your foodstuff and transporting them to your home"
"The people looting stores and malls are definitely thieves, nobody is disputing that. However, if you are talking about the people repossessing their seized palliatives, I'd like to ask you to explain if leaving it to spoil in the warehouse is a better alternative."
