There was pandemonium in Kwara State on Friday after a crowd invaded a warehouse housing food items stored for distribution as COVID-19 palliative at Cargo Terminal, Ilorin international Airport.
Series of videos and pictures circulating online show people looting packs of noodles, rice, sugar, garri, and other food items kept as COVID-19 palliative.
The crowd, mainly young people, came with motorcycles and buses, to transport looted items from the warehouse to their respective homes.
As at the time of filing this report, security operatives were still busy trying to contain activities of the people at the facility.
Below are some videos and photos captured at the scene:
