Residents of Jalingo, Taraba State, have discovered and looted a COVID-19 palliatives warehouse in the state.

The looting of COVID-19 warehouse started from Lagos and has extended to states like Oyo, Osun, Plateau, Edo and Kwara.

It was gathered that the residents overpowered security operatives, who watched helplessly as the people made away with different food items.

The looting, which started in the evening, continued till 9pm as more people came for their share of the hoarded palliatives.

In videos of the looting obtained by SaharaReporters, residents could be seen driving tricycles and cars as well as pushing carts into the warehouse for easy carriage of the food items.

However, there are reports of a stampede as more people trooped into the warehouse.

About two people are feared dead as the looting went on unhindered.
