Some angry youths in Osun on Friday stormed a warehouse in Ede town, where COVID-19 palliatives were allegedly stored.
Equally important, the youths carted away food items meant to be distributed to residents.
The angry youths trooped out in their hundreds to the moribund Cocoa-Ceramic Industry in Ede where the COVID-19 palliatives were stored. 1st News reports that some of the COVID-19 palliatives carted away include beans, noodles, sugar, salt, garri, rice, pasta; among other items.
There were no attempts to stop them.
Specifically, Mr. Mufu Akano, one of the youths who spoke to newsmen, said he is happy to be among those who will go home “with what belongs to us”.
Akano noted that the food palliatives which were supposed to be distributed to residents in the state were locked up in a safe haven for some unexplained reasons and agenda which he considered “evil”.
Also, he commended the zeal and effrontery of the looters; including some commercial motorcyclists and drivers of some private vehicles who joined in the looting.
Meanwhile, a Grade I Area Court Judge asked a 65-year-old man; Samuel Maduakar, to forgive and pray for his “problem daughter” Ifeoma to change.
The police charged Ifeoma, 27, with criminal intimidation, assault and mischief on February 19. Further, the police alleged that she attacked her father and threatened to poison him.
