Army, Police join residents to cart away undistributed COVID-19 palliatives at warehouse in Lagos (VIDEOS)

Security agents including army and police were captured on camera looting a warehouse where COVID-19 palliatives were kept in Lagos.

According to reports, suspected hoodlums first broke into the warehouse in the Mazamaza area in Amuwo Odofin Local Government.

After the hoodlums gained entrance into the warehouse, they made away with some undistributed COVID-19 palliatives.

The warehouse is located on Benster Crescent, popularly called Monkey Village.

It was learnt that hoodlums later alerted residents in the area to move into the warehouse and pick some palliatives.

Videos posted online showed hundreds of residents and security operatives, who came with OP MESA van, making away with the items which were clearly branded with COVID-19 palliatives.

The Nigerian government had during the heat of the coronavirus lockdown criticized for not distributing palliatives to the citizens despite budgeting for it.

So it must have come as a shock to the residents to discover such items were hidden away in a warehouse in their neighborhood despite the hunger in the land.
