Former Kaduna Central lawmaker, Shehu Sani has reacted to reports of some residents in Bayelsa breaking into a warehouse to cart away palliatives.
ADULAWO NEWS recalls that on Sunday night, some individuals broke into a warehouse in Yenagoa, where 2022 flood palliatives were kept by the state government and stole some food items said to be already decaying.
The warehouse located along Isaac Boro Expressway in Yenagoa, the state capital, was looted by people said to be angered due to the hardship in the country occasioned by the removal of subsidy on Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), otherwise known as petrol, by the Federal Government.

The Bayelsa State Emergency Management Agency (BYSEMA), however, said that the food items carted away were no longer good for human consumption, because it was stored during the 2022 flood in the state.
Reacting to the development via Twitter, Sani urged business owners with warehouses to open it to the community so they would know it is not a palliative depot.
