At about 8:30- 9:00 Monday morning, Gwagwalada area council was agog with residents running out from different angles to go scamper for Covid19 palliatives stored in a warehouse behind the Atlas International Hotel located along phase 1 road.
Amongst the items people made away with include bags of rice, semovita, spaghetti, indomie, sugar, salt, cartons of seasoning cubes, bags of fertilizer, cable wires, grinding machines amongst other times all boldly crested with the logo, Covid19.
A resident who refused to disclose his name to this reporter said, “I was at home when my friend called me to say I should come out that the warehouse has been discovered.
“I was asking which warehouse because I didn’t see this coming but he was not responding so I went out and joined the crowd running to the location. It’s our food and I came to take mine, ” he said.
Another resident who also didn’t mention his name said the warehouse is stocked to the full with palliatives, revealing that the place was built just during the lockdown period .
He said, “Police and Army are there but they are not harming anybody, it is how to get in that is the problem, but I must get mine.
