Amid several reports of looting across the country, Abuja residents on Monday took law into their hands by breaking into a warehouse in search of COVID-19 palliatives.
According to footages shared by eye-witnesses via social media, the looted items varied from rice and semovita to macaroni, spaghetti, sugar, salt, and fertilizers.
The warehouse which is located near West African Examination Council (WAEC) office Gwagwalada, is said to contain items belonging to the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA).
The youths had earlier on Sunday broken into a warehouse at Jabi district close to the code of conduct tribunal. Defying the presence of soldiers and policemen the looters made away with various bagged items and stationeries.
Another warehouse at Idu industrial area was also attacked by the looters. Although the looters were unable to lay their hands on COVID-19 palliatives, they vandalized the place removing windows and door frames.
