Nigerian lady painted looting scene

Meanwhile, earlier reported that a very talented Nigerian lady used her skill to paint the popular picture showing the moment a crowd went berserk and looted a warehouse of COVID-19 palliatives in Jos.

In an Instagram post, the artist revealed that it took her eight months of hard work to make the great piece.
