Four Feared Dead In Kogi Stampede For Palliatives by akure1stson: 5:47pm On Oct 25, 2020
Four persons were feared to have died on Sunday afternoon in Kogi as hundreds of residents stormed a warehouse in Lokoja in search of COVID-19 palliatives.

The warehouse, located along the Murtala Mohammed Way, close to Kpata the market was reportedly invaded as early as 7am on Saturday through Sunday, mostly by the women.

The fatalities, it was gathered, resulted from stampede by residents who rushed at the government warehouse.

The State Government had last week commenced distribution of COVID-19 palliatives to the 21 local government areas.

Each local government area got at least one trailer load of palliative items, including rice, semovita, indomie noodles and pastas in 10 kilogram packs.

The siege on the warehouse, it was gathered, might not be unconnected with an order by Governor Yahaya Bello the remaining items be distributed to people.

A source, who claimed to have been at the scene, told The Nation the casualties were recorded despite warnings by security personnel deployed to the area the residents should maintain the peace and avoid anything that may lead to stampede.

Some of the women,who spoke with our correspondent, confirmed they were there in response to the Governor’s directive that the remaining items be distributed to them.

I hope this revelation will lead to a new Nigeria in 2023. This has exposed the evil & wicked politicians of this country.

Imagine if these palliatives were inform of money, the masses wouldn't have known about it because it wouldn't be in warehouses.

To think that this is how these politicians have been stashing the money meant for development of this country is a sad one.

What angers me is that class of people that went rice hunting despite not been in dire need of it. Let these things be for those in abject poverty. But some civil servants still go in palliative hunt. Black mans problem is lack of empathy and greed

Feared dead because some greedy bastard hoard what rightfully belong to them.
Hunger is in the land and our leaders has no conscience to watch people suffer while our palliatives rots away.
How do they even sleep at night?

May the soul of the dead haunt them and may they die a sorrowful and painful death like these innocent souls did.
