Kano State Seals 10 Warehouses Hoarding Food, Confiscates Essential Goods

They were stacked full of commodity including rice, pasta, sugar, cooking oil and other food items.

The Kano State Public Complaint and Anti Corruption Commission (PCACC) on Sunday confiscated essential goods running to several millions of Naira stocked in ten warehouses at Dawanau international comodity market in Kano metropolis.

The Commission had set up an intelligence mechanism and launched a manhunt on food hoarders who Imposed untold hardship on the citizens.

In a grand operation, the Chairman of the Commission, Barrister Muhyi alongside the personnels of Commission clamped down on warehouses and stores engaged in hoarding of assorted foodstuff across the state.

All the owners of such warehouse were nowhere to be found during the operation but those opened were stacked full of commodity including rice, pasta, sugar, cooking oil and other food items.

The Chairman of the Anti-graft Agency said, some of the owners of the warehouses have been issued notice to report to the anti graft Commission preparatory to facing charges before the court of law for their illegal activities.

As you can see, the Kano state Public Complaint and Anti Corruption Commission (PCACC) has made true it’s promise that we are going to embark on fight against hoarding of essential commodities in the state.

“We started last Thursday and we have made a significant impact towards stopping the instant rise in the price of essential commodities. It was such that within a week, rice had jumped from N52,000 to N61,000 within a week.

“Alhamdulillah form what we have done so far, we are certain that there is impact. From here we are going to the market to ascertain the situation.

“Firstly, we were able to stop the instant increase in prices of the commodities and secondly we have the belief that if we sustain the tempo we will be able to bring down the prices from where they have gotten to.

“As you can see now we are going round the warehouses and we met a lot of issues which after we go back to the office we are going to digest. “One fundamental problem is each stalk we enter they will be claiming that it is the World Food Program Store. We wonder if the world food program will starve the country while taking the food somewhere else.

“You can see, I was told here today that the price of maize has jumped from N30,000 to N60,000. So you see, a hundred percent increase, this is unacceptable. You can see these stores, there are hundreds of millions of Naira worth of hoarded commodity.

“We are taking over the stores now and we are going to make some certain arrests because these will not be tolerated. This is not a market, this is a warehouse. We have activated our intelligence mechanism and they have come up with reports on where and how they are hoarding it” he explained.

Good move, when are they hitting cement warehouses and electronic warehouses? Dollar is jumping and you expect food stuffs to be on snail speed?
I forgot Tinubu told us not to bother about the dollar rise that we won't be paid dollars during his campaign.

Chai, some people still failed to see the "Good move" as sarcasm.

Time of witch-hunt have started. Was the man the cause of high cost of goods in the market. If all the good were brought out in the market to sale at the same time, what will happen in the subsequent months. Delusional government without sense of direction.

This is the way to go.

Why store up food in warehouses outside of the market environment and create artificial scarcity so you can maximize profit at the expense of your fellow citizens?

As long as those warehouses were loaded by Street boys, they can always be located.

Remembered those days of "essential commodities" in the late 80's. Every hoarded commodity discovered was auctioned by the military to the general public at specified prices.

Hoarding of food should be designated as TREASON.

Very soon if someone wear fine cloths, they would beat them up for wearing cloths when others are in rag (then hand them over to bandit for kidnapping tax)...

That is how Buhari evil campaign made all the rich men where I live took all their luxury car to Abuja (not to provoke the talakawas).

This is extremely wrong. They may not be hoarding it. Business men normally hold their goods in warehouses, I have done supermarket before. You sell it gradually in your shop until it finishes. When you empty people's warehouses, what next will you sell? What message are you also passing to business men? It also very easy to target people you hate. Northern leaders are always making silly mistakes

Where did the food come from? What will such action do to the masses? If this is good news, congratulations. If nothing fruitful comes out of this, tough luck to Nigerians.

Dem no get sense. This will increase prices of good. No business man will buy goods again in bulk. Business normal buy in bulk and store in warehouses to sell slowly. Criminalising it is destroying your economy

Our government will always act foolish. Most state governors hoarded food during the COVID-19 period instead of sharing until end SARS protesters got wind of it and invaded the warehouses. No body complain instead the guys were termed criminals for taking their potion of palliative hidden by their governors. But today ordinary business men's warehouses a been sealed by mumu authority for daring to store food for the Future since prices of such will continue to soar

Those were donation from overseas.
A eyewitness video showed a large mob carrying bag of race and other food items for for 3+ hours straight. Law Enforcement were also packing/looting palliatives (at the back of their pickup) and it didn't finish for hours.

Hmmmmmm. The simple solution to this problem is, the border should be open, stop the float of dollar and reintroduce the subsidy. Their is hunger in the land. People are dying, mothers and their daughters now compete on who sleeps with men the most just to survive.
