A group of individuals from Bayelsa State reportedly gained unauthorized access to a warehouse where relief supplies were being distributed to specific groups of people.
The warehouse, situated along Isaac Boro Expressway in Yenagoa, the capital of the state, was breached on Sunday.
According to reports, these individuals were driven by frustration caused by the prevailing hardships in the country, primarily stemming from the removal of subsidies on Premium Motor Spirit, commonly referred to as petrol.
However, it remains uncertain whether the warehouse that was plundered contained food items designated for distribution to various states as pledged by the administration of President Bola Tinubu, with the intention of mitigating the impact of the fuel subsidy withdrawal.
There are speculations that the looted relief supplies might have been earmarked for individuals affected by flooding in the state.
As of the time of this report, the state government has not issued any statements regarding this incident.
