In the aftermath of the #EndSARS protests, residents of Osun and Kwara states, Friday, broke into the warehouses where CACOVID palliatives labelled ‘NOT FOR SALE’ were kept and cart away various food items.

Coalition Against COVID-19 (CACOVID) is a private sector championed initiative meant to assist the governments at all levels to combat coronavirus through provision of medical equipment and food items as palliatives for distribution to the people.

But rather than distributing the items to the people promptly, they are being kept in warehouses across their states for reason (s) best known to the governors.

In the warehouses were food items such as spaghetti, garri, rice, noodles, sugar, semovita, and macaroni.

In Ilorin, angry residents invaded the warehouses located at the airport road and another one at Agro Mall, Sango, carting away all the food items kept there.

In Osun, the location is Coacoa Store in Ede, where residents forced their way in and looted all the items stacked in it.

Prompt News recalls that residents of Lagos led the way on Thursday, when they discovered and broke into a warehouse located at Maza maza in Amuwo Odofin, carting away all the food items
