- Another COVID-19 palliatives warehouse has been invaded in Abuja
- A mob in the Gwagwalada area of the FCT attacked a storehouse loaded with bags of rice
- Upon noticing the invasion, passersby also joined in the looting and carted away other grains
For miscreants in Abuja, the warning of President Muhammadu Buhari against looting public and private properties meant nothing.
This is as many hoodlums on Monday, October 26, invaded a warehouse in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) where COVID-19 palliatives were stored, The Cable reports.
The storehouse located in the Gwagwalada area council is known to be owned by the agricultural and rural development secretariat of the FCT's administration.
Bags of rice and other grains were carted away by the thugs who were also joined by passersby.
In a similar development, miscreants in Osun who recently looted state properties in the name of EndSARS protests have been given not more than three days to return what they stole.
The threat was issued by Governor Adegboyega Oyetola on Sunday, October 25, during his tour around the state to assess the extent of damage done by the miscreants.
Oyetola vowed that the thugs will be made to face the full weight of the law if they fail to do the needful upon the expiration of the grace period.
To avoid this, the governor urged the looters to return what they carted away to the palace of monarchs nearest to them or the chairmen of local government councils in their areas.
Also, Senator Florence Ita-Giwa, a former special assistant to ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo on National Assembly (NASS), pleaded with Nigerian youths to end the destruction of public properties.
Senator Ita-Giwa directed her plea on Saturday, October 24, to youths in Calabar, the Cross River state capital, over the looting and destruction of government facilities.
The senator lamented that the violence that has been sparked during the EndSARS protests and the havoc done so far have affected all classes of the society.
