The youths said they were heading to a warehouse housing COVID-19 palliatives.
“You people are claiming your food are in somewhere government kept. So what do you people want to go and do? You want to go and scatter there?”, the soldier asked.
In response, the youths answered in the affirmative and noted that people in other states have gone to storage facilities to take palliatives.
