The governor described the looting that occurred in parts of the state as armed robbery.

Meanwhile, the federal government has finally lifted the lids on the hoarding of the palliative meant to cushion the effect of the coronavirus pandemic.
According to a credible source within the current cabinet, President Buhari never told the 36 states to await further directives before they could distribute the COVID-19 palliative to the people.
Zahra, the daughter of Buhari in an Instagram post also said the discovery of the COVID-19 palliatives showed that the president is not the problem of the country.
