Storage facilities holding tons of relief materials have been burglarized and looted in nine states across Nigeria over the last few days.
A private sector coalition against the coronavirus, known as CA-COVID, had collected tens of millions of dollars’ worth of aid for coronavirus victims and given it to the government.
But many state authorities have halted distribution of the aid since the easing of lockdowns.
Some Nigerians accuse authorities of hoarding items while millions of people experience hunger.
Abuja residents like Sunday Chukwu say they didn’t receive any government assistance during lockdowns.
“They didn’t share anything here,” said Chukwu. “Maybe they shared for themselves. But they didn’t share for everybody and these ones now they are hiding it so that people may leave it, they’ll now gather them, they’ll be selling it to the people.”Pass WAEC, NECO, JAMB like a boss - Practise for FREE on ExamblyApp!
