The 24-hour curfew imposed on Jalingo obviously meant nothing to hundreds of irate youths who defied the order as they invaded and vandalised the state-owned radio station in Taraba on Monday, October 26.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the youths broke into the Taraba State Broadcasting Corporation (TSBS) and carted away with movable equipment in all the departments. The hoodlums also destroyed what was left of the facilities.

Danjuma Adamu, the state commissioner of information and reorientation, made this known after visiting the scene to inspect the amount of damage caused by the hoodlums.

Adamu speaking to journalists after the inspection condemned the action of the youths, saying the destruction had gone beyond the #EndSARS protest.

While noting that the dimension the protests took in the last two days was criminal, Adamu described the incident as worrisome.

Adamu further said other organisations being accommodated within the premises of the radio station were also destroyed.

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that the ongoing looting recorded in parts of the country assumed a desperate dimension when looters invaded the COVID-19 isolation centre in Jalingo, Taraba state capital.

Thousands of youths broke into the centre located along Wukari Jalingo road and went away with mattresses and other items.

Some soldiers and police officers deployed to the centre were unable to stop the youths from carting away items at the facility. Reports emerged that the hoodlums looted all the mattresses numbering 200 and other supplies in the facility.
