Over four warehouses across Abuja have been looted by hoodlums within the last 48 hours.
The violence, which stemmed from the shooting of unarmed protesters at the Lekki toll gate last Tuesday, has quickly spread to other parts of the country, with public and private warehouses as well as government officials’ homes as primary targets.
The Federal Capital Territory has now attracted looters who, on Sunday afternoon, invaded warehouses at Idu Industrial Layout parting with loads of items including motorcycles, bags of rice, cereals and textiles.
Yesterday morning, looters once again gathered at Idu where they attacked another warehouse.
At the time of filing this report, looting had spread to the Gwagwalada area, where looters ransacked a COVID-19 palliative warehouse.
