Hoodlums invade warehouse, loot COVID-19 palliatives/Foods in Lagos



Hundreds of residents in Lagos, on Thursday, 22nd October began carting away food items stacked in a warehouse in Monkey Village, Maza maza, in Amuwo Odofin.

The food items, which were labelled ‘CACOVID, NOT FOR SALE,’ include bags of rice, macaroni, spaghetti, salt, garri, sugar and cartons of noodles.

Some youths of Maza-Maza, Mile 2 area of Lagos uncovered the warehouse in Monkey Community in the area stocked with COVID-19 palliatives.

The palliatives, which were branded Ca-COVID palliatives Lagos State, included countless bags of rice, cartons of noodles, spaghetti, salt, vegetable oil, tomato paste, beans, garri, and lots more.


The palliatives are, possibly, foodstuffs meant to alleviate the effect of the lockdown and the economic meltdown on the poor populace in Lagos state from March when the lockdown took effect.

Many residents were seen happily carting away the palliatives, which they said were their rights.

According to one of the residents, they have been packing items since 7am. All the food items have been looted.
