The Ekiti State Government has told looters that items recovered by them are not COVID-19 palliatives, rather they are poisonous substances that should not be consumed. 

Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Mr Akin Omole, gave the warning on Saturday, October 24. 

The commissioner stated it was important to send out the warning to prevent casualties resulting from consumption of the goods. 

He said: 

“Information at our disposal revealed that the Federal Government’s silos, the ADP warehouse and the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) stores, all in Ado- Ekiti, were attacked by hoodlums under the guise of seeking Covid-19 palliatives.

We insist that Ekiti state currently has no Covid-19 palliative warehouse as all the palliatives had been distributed.

Unfortunately, the items carted away were Single Super Phosphate and NPK fertilisers, which they erroneously thought was “Gaari’’, cassava grains.

The SEMA store too has only emergency supplies for disaster response.

Some people even made away with pre-fermented corns preserved for planting. All these items are poisonous and not fit for consumption.

We, therefore, appeal to our people not to consume these items because they can kill,”
