Read!: Ekiti Raises Alarm Over Looting Of Poisonous Food Items
The Ekiti State government raised an alarm on Saturday that huge quantities of poisonous items, mistaken for food yet to be distributed as COVID-19 palliative, were looted in warehouses in Ado-Ekiti on Friday.
The Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Akin Omole, said in a statement in Ado Ekiti that raising the alarm became expedient to forestall any harm that could befall anyone who consumed the items.
Also reportedly looted was the office of the Agricultural Development Programme (ADP) in Ado Ekiti.
“Information at our disposal revealed that the Federal Government’s silos, the ADP warehouse and the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) stores, all in Ado- Ekiti, were attacked by hoodlums under the guise of seeking Covid-19 palliatives.
“We insist that Ekiti state currently has no Covid-19 palliative warehouse as all the palliatives had been distributed.
“Unfortunately, the items carted away were Single Super Phosphate and NPK fertilisers, which they erroneously thought was “Gaari’’, cassava grains.
