It is a Saturday of high-octane dramas as the ongoing attacks on government facilities have spawned a curious discovery in Benin City, Edo State Capital, as youths stumbled on and looted COVID-19 palliatives hidden away in an uncompleted building.
This came on the heels of the earlier invasion and looting of COVID-19 palliatives in another location at Edo Pharmaceutical Company on Medical Store Road, off New Lagos- Benin Road.
Soldiers stationed there were reported to have allowed the teeming youths passage without much resistance.
In a related development, the uncompleted building that another group of youths invaded was reportedly located in Government Reservation Area (GRA).
The hidden store was largely unknown to the powerful, the rich and the mighty living in and around the premises of the GRA until the poor and hungry youths found it out on Saturday.
Perhaps, only those who stored the palliatives there might have known of the storage of the palliatives in the uncompleted building.
The youths expectedly helped themselves with the loot while in the process they rained curses on the state government under Governor Godwin Obaseki, for its insensitivity and wickedness.
